Our Distinguished Partners

Operation ABLE collaborates with many of the finest Massachusetts businesses, non-profit organizations, and government agencies to serve the needs of job seekers age 45 and up. These organizations provide financial assistance, strategic counsel, and advocacy - all critical to our success

Business Partners

Public and private business organizations generously support our annual Starfish Thrower Gala and contribute to our annual appeal. They hire our graduates, host interns from our programs; advise students on resumes, networking, interview skills, and job-search techniques; and serve on our Board of Directors and Employer Advisory Committee.

Non-Profit Partners

Non-profit Massachusetts organizations are able to help job seekers 45 and up in meaningful and sustainable ways. Non-profits can host a participant from the ABLE Senior Community Service Employment Program; provide an internship for a student; and join other non-profits supporting the needs of our target population.

Government Partners

Tuition assistance for many of the students in our training programs is provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, which also provides paid, on-the-job training opportunities through the Senior Community Service Employment Program. Students are also supported by a variety of other state, local, and federal sources of financial and in-kind support.

Employer Advisory Committee (EAC)

Our EAC is comprised of Human Resources professionals from Boston’s leading companies. They offer insight into current business practices, software applications used in their industries, and hiring trends taking shape in the workplace. EAC members support ABLE events, collaborate with Operation ABLE about training requirements for their organizations, and counsel students on what employers are looking for in today's business environment.

Operation ABLE would be pleased to have other employers join the distinguished list of current EAC Committee members listed below.
