ReServe is an innovative nonprofit that matches continuing professionals age 55+ (ReServists) with organizations that need their expertise.

Do you want to give back to your community?

Are you looking for an opportunity to re-enter the workforce part-time?

Well, then you should check out ReServe.  ReServe  is a nonprofit that puts adults age 55 and up to work in schools, government offices, and community organizations.  It has been featured in the Boston Globe.

As a potential ReServist, you can be matched with an organization that needs your expertise. Most positions are between 10 and 20 hours a week and last for at least three months.  ReServists get paid a $10 per hour stipend for their efforts.

Organizations who have gaps in their staff can register with ReServe to get the talent they need, through the Give Back, Fill the Gap program.  Or through the Impact Initiatives program ReServists can tackle issues with the community and work one on one with clients who need your skills.

The Boston chapter, launched earlier this year, is operated by JVS Boston in collaboration with Discovering What’s Next.

JVS Boston specializes helping individuals find jobs and get the skills they need to become successful in the workplace and their communities.  Discovering What’s Next provides individuals over 50 with resources and programming and promotes community engagement.
