Experience Works provides job skills training for low income seniors age 55 and over.  Eligible seniors are placed in part time non-profit agencies to provide on the job experience and an opportunity to re-enter the job market.  Some enrollees are hired by their Host Site while others may be moved to another Host Site to acquire additional work skills.  Salary is paid to the participant by the Experience Works Program.  The ultimate goal is to provide unsubsidized employment for the participant.
