Mission: Improve the lives of older people through training, community service, and employment.
About: Experience Works helps low-income seniors, with multiple barriers to employment, get the training they need to find good jobs in their local communities. They believe that older people should have an opportunity to learn new skills and contribute to their community throughout their lives.

People who are productive and active throughout their lives will have better health, increased longevity, and a more positive impact on their community.
