It’s not too early for teens to apply for summer jobs

Mayor Menino and the Boston Youth Fund (BYF) invite Boston teens to start thinking about getting a summer job. If you are between the ages of 15 and 17, a legal and full-time resident of the city of Boston, then there is work for you. Starting right now, Boston youth can discover and explore their talents while contributing to the overall well-being of the community.

But a summer job isn’t about keeping busy and earning income. The BYF gives local youth an opportunity to participate in rewarding work and build lasting relationships. “At the BYF, a youth employee is able to gain a sense of responsibility and team work while broadening their sense of community,” says the organization’s website. Teen employees can also learn new career skills, and gain a better understanding of how he or she wants to develop personally and professionally.

Each year the BYF eagerly anticipates hiring Hopeline applicants, so if you are an ambitious teen, or know of one, please register before the end of February to be considered for a summer job. Apply online at to browse jobs in multiple languages or call 617-635-HOPE(4673) to learn more information.
