Cobenais honored for outstanding service

Experience Works, the nation's largest nonprofit training and employment organization for older workers, has honored Rachel Cobenais of Bemidji for her outstanding service to local older workers.

Cobenais 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.

A nonprofit organization, Experience Works offers job training services in Minnesota, 29 other states and Puerto Rico through the Senior Community Service Employment Program. 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.
