Awards & Recognition
Orleans Receives Encore Opportunity Award
JEVS Human Services was presented with the prestigious 2009 Encore Opportunity Award by Civic Ventures, a national think tank on baby boomers, work and social purpose. This award, sponsored by the MetLife Foundation, honors eight employers nationally in the nonprofit and public sector with effective strategies for engaging experienced adults over 50 in meaningful “second careers.” The award recognizes Orleans Technical College, where more than half of the roughly 120 employees are 50-plus. In addition, the school helps the instructional staff, most of whom are former trades people with decades of experience, transfer their skills to the classroom and offer a unique experience to students.
