Experience Works, the nation’s largest nonprofit training and employment organization for older workers, has honored Gail Tabor of Baxley for her outstanding service to local older workers. Ms. Tabor has received the organization’s Changing Lives award, which recognizes her efforts to help low-income older workers obtain the training they need to find good jobs in their communities.
“We’re very proud to recognize Gail’s outstanding efforts to assist older individuals who desperately need to find jobs,” says Shane Bateman, CEO of Experience Works. The Senior Community Service Employment Program is a nonduplicative workforce training program that responds to the ever-growing number of older people who both want and need to work. The current economic situation has forced many older people to look for employment, and Gail is dedicated to helping them re-tool and re-enter the workforce in this way,” said Bateman.
A nonprofit organization, Experience Works offers community service and employment services in Georgia, 29 other states, and Puerto Rico through the Senior Community Service Employment Program. The community-based program helps low-income older individuals serve their communities, upgrade their employment skills, and get a job.
