Retirement Engagement Alternatives Program

The REAP program for Brookline residents 55+ helps people remain engaged and active in the community.

We partner with organizations to offer work with BrooklineCAN (BCAN), Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), Brookline Adult and Community Education, Executive Office of Elder Affairs, and Town of Brookline departments. There are opportunities for tax work-off, and grant funded jobs for income qualified residents.
