The Experience Works Senior Community Service Employment Program is accepting applications from unemployed persons 55 or older who live in Jasper, Newton and Porter counties and have incomes of $13,964 per year or less for a family of one ($18,913 for family of two).
“In this difficult economy, many older Hoosiers are finding it necessary to find work,” said Peggy Pachowiak, local employment and training coordinator for Experience Works.
Experience Works SCSEP is free to people who meet eligibility criteria. The program provides paid community service assignments at local public and nonprofit organizations, training, referral to needed services, and job search assistance. With updated skills, participants use their training as a springboard to permanent jobs.
