Experience Works, the nation’s largest nonprofit training and employment organization for older workers, has honored Kimberly Mattingly of Bardstown for her outstanding service to local older workers.
Mattingly recently 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 Kimberly Mattingly’s outstanding efforts to assist older individuals who desperately need to find jobs,” said Billy Wooten, executive director of program operations for Experience Works. “The current economic situation has forced many older people to look for employment, and Kimberly is dedicated to helping them re-tool and re-enter the workforce.”
A nonprofit organization, Experience Works offers job training services in Kentucky, 29 other states and Puerto Rico through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). The community-based program helps low-income, mature individuals enter the workforce, secure more challenging positions, move into new career areas or supplement their incomes.  For more information about Experience Works call 800-842-4982 or visit www.experienceworks.org.
