BROOKSVILLE — Friends of Chinsegut Hill Inc., a nonprofit organization, has recently qualified for inclusion in a new federal employment opportunity program known as Urban Seniors.
"It's designed for seniors trying to re-enter the workforce," said Natalie Kahler, manager of the historic Chinsegut Hill manor house and its 50-acre grounds.
The manor house operates as a historic museum while the grounds offer rental cabins and conference accommodations.
The program is open to those 55 years of age and older who have been out of the workforce and want to refresh or update their skills for successful re-entry. Five positions offering 20-hour workweeks, for a maximum of six months, are available. One housekeeping position already has been filled.
Positions are open, Kahler said, in the areas of groundskeeping, office staff, gift shop and housekeeping.
Details are available by phoning the office at (352) 799-5400 or visiting the manor house at 22495 Chinsegut Hill Road, north of Brooksville.
