opportunity for corporations, businesses, foundations and associations
to impact and improve the economy in a small but significant way with
its "Bridging the Generations Employment Training Opportunity." "The
experience that two workers over 55 years old and three high school to
college age youth can receive via our program will give them just the
edge they will need to land a better job," said Jackie Wright, event
