CARES in New Port Richey offers seminar on job training, community service for seniors

NEW PORT RICHEY — Experience Works, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of older people through training, community service and employment, will sponsor the Bridges to Opportunity Community Event on Wednesday at the CARES Elfers Center, 4136 Barker Dr. The first-time event will provide a forum to create connections that bridge older individuals and other members of the community to information and resources that can enhance their quality of life.

Registration and the resource booths open at 9 a.m. The Bridges to Opportunity program starts at 10 a.m., with speakers who will inspire, motivate and engage the audience. Networking and resource booths will continue until 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

In addition to more than a dozen vendors, the Pasco-Hernando Career Source Technology Bus and the Alzheimer's Association Memory Bus will be parked outside the Elfers Center.

For those interested in re-entering the workforce, Experience Works will be accepting applications for the Senior Community Service Employment Program, which 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 community service training as a springboard to permanent jobs.
