For Baltimore Professionals Aged 55+ ReServe Offers Jobs That Matter
Branden McLeod, SWCOS clinical instructor & director of ReServe, an employment program for seniors, is quoted in a Baltimore Fishbowl article where he speaks about the importance of the right match between seniors and participating agencies.

The national nonprofit, ReServe, has opened its second affiliate in Baltimore, being operated through a partnership with the UM School of Social Work's Social Work Community Outreach Service (SWCOS).

ReServists are older professionals, often with many years of experience. They expect their services to be valued, and ReServe matches these baby boomers with the people and organizations that need them.

Baltimore Spokesperson for ReServe, Branden McLeod comments, "The "matching" aspect is the second key difference in ReServe's approach to community service. The nonprofit partner agency will provide training for applicants in positions that require it. We've received funding from several major partners in the Baltimore area, including the Consumer Credit Counseling Service, which provides financial counseling to low- and middle-income families; and the College Bound Foundation, which offers Baltimore City high school students help with college access. ReServists will be provided with the additional skills it takes to help in these areas."
