Thank you for your interest in the CHOREs Program!
The CHOREs Program is coordinated by AHM Youth & Family Services and is funded by a grant from the NCAAA (North Central Area Agency on Aging) along with donations from Church of the Holy Family, Marlborough Congregational Church and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. Special thanks this year to Hebron’s Greater Together Community Fund, and Marlborough’s Greater Together Community Fund for helping to support this program.
The purpose of the CHOREs Program is for teenagers to help senior citizens with chores within their home and on their property such as raking, stacking wood, weeding, dusting and vacuuming. Senior citizens 60+ years of age who are residents in the towns Andover, Hebron and Marlborough are welcome to contact their town’s senior center for the application forms.
The benefits are great for both senior citizens and teenagers! Senior citizens have chores completed at no charge around their home* and yard! And, teenagers age 14-18 earn the minimum wage per billable hour for contract work up to two hours per job, earn a letter of recommendation for active involvement in the program, and learn communication, scheduling and time-management skills! A win-win!
COVID, safety protocol will be followed until further notice; no indoor jobs are being scheduled and no contact between students and seniors during outdoor jobs.
If you would like more information or have questions, please contact Kristina Smith, AHM’S Youth Employment Coordinator by calling 860-324-1820 or email KristinaH@ahmyouth.org.
