Are you older than 55 and seeking employment? Do you feel you don't have the skills needed to obtain the job you want?

Experience Works is calling on Baby Boomers and older residents who are seeking employment for participation in a program that allows them to get paid while learning new skills.

Experience Works is a non-profit organization that is funded by the Department of Labor that trains individuals who are 55 years old and older and offers assistance in returning to the workforce.

Based on their employment interests and goals, participants are assigned to qualified non-profit organizations or government agencies on a part-time basis where they are trained and receive work experience by performing their community service training assignment. While participants receive training, supervision and experience directly from their host agencies, their training wages and fringe benefits are paid by Experience Works.
