NETWORKING WORKS! Your AGE really is your EDGE©!

Remote Work Training Program

If you are a resident of Massachusetts, over the age of 55, unemployed, and interested in working remotely, you may be eligible for an exciting, new and innovative skills training program.

 

Operation ABLE of Greater Boston in partnership with the Executive Office of Elder Affairs will soon be launching the ABLE Remote Employment Skills Training Program. This free 20-week program funded by the US Department of Labor provides individuals over the age of 55 with the skills, experience, and understanding needed to be able to work effectively in a remote or hybrid environment. The program, which will be offered virtually, will include instruction in computers and job search as well as components in customer service, accounting, or medical administration.

 

Access to computers through a loaner laptop program may also be available for those participants lacking the necessary technology to study and work from their homes.

 

The first training cycle starts September 13, 2021 with two more cohorts to start in the Winter and Spring.

If you are interested in applying and/or looking for more information, please contact Mark Gyurina at Operation ABLE, 617-542-4180 or via email at mgyurina@operationable.net
