Participants are paid with funds through the Senior Community Service Employment Program while they train temporarily at local nonprofit organizations.

There is no cost to these organizations and agencies for the extra pair of hands.

Experience Works helps older workers gain confidence to get back into the workforce by offering training in computer training, CDL licensure, job search classes, certified nurses assistant (CNA) training, boiler license and more.

Older workers can also train in custodial, production, clerical, reception, secretarial, dietary, informational and retail positions.

Those 55 and older with limited income and interested in getting back into the work force can contact Jean Lillis at 218-385-2900, ext. 124 or 1-800-450-5627.

Experience Works serves participants in Becker and East Otter Tail counties.
