About the Snow Shoveling Program

The Somerville Teen Shoveling program is a paid program for youth to shovel out seniors and homeowners with disabilities after a snowstorm in Somerville. Teens and homeowners are paired for the season. After each storm, the homeowner contacts their assigned youth to request shoveling services.
