Our Distinguished Partners
Operation A.B.L.E. collaborates with many of the finest Massachusetts businesses, non-profit organizations, and government agencies to serve the needs of job seekers age 45 and older. These organizations provide financial assistance, strategic counsel, and advocacy - all critical to our success.
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 Massachusetts organizations are able to help job seekers 45 and older in several significant ways. Non-profits can host a participant from the A.B.L.E. Senior Community Service Employment Program; provide an internship for a student; and join other non-profits supporting the needs of our target population.
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.

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, andhiring trends taking shape in the workplace.
