Firm helps with job skills, search for employment
By John Beale
Adults 55 and over looking for employment, may find assistance from the Senior Community Service Employment Program.
The program, operated in Dutchess County by Pathstone Corporation serves low-income residents 55 and older who have poor employment prospects, by placing them in part-time community service positions and by assisting them to transition to unsubsidized employment.
The community service positions are generally in nonprofit or government agencies. The positions are part-time, pay minimum wage and last for six months. During the six months, workers receive assistance with job skills and job search activities.
For more information, call 845-473-9000 ext. 125. The program is at 233 Main St., Poughkeepsie.
