What We Do

Experience Works helps low-income seniors, with multiple barriers to employment, get the training they need to find good jobs in their local communities.

Experience Works is a national, charitable, community-based organization. Originally named Green Thumb, and chartered in 1965 as a small, rural demonstration program, Experience Works has grown to be the nation’s leading provider of training, employment, and community service for low-income older people.

    Experience Works

    • Impacts more than 50,000 people each year
    • Has more than 400 employees and operations in 30 states and Puerto Rico 
    • Is funded by grants, contracts and foundations, and contributions from organizations and individual

    Our Mission
    Improve the lives of older people through training, community service, and employment.

    Our Strengths

    • Assisting employers to take full advantage of the talents of older workers
    • Helping older people who are low income or at risk of becoming low income
    • Using community service to train while on the job and as a path to employment
    • Building strong relationships in local communities
    • Addressing the challenges facing older people in rural America

    Our Beliefs

    • Older people should have the opportunity to learn new skills and contribute to their communities throughout their lives
    • Employers who hire, train and retain older workers will be most successful
    • People who are productive and active throughout their lives will have better health, increased longevity, and a positive impact on their communities
