The Central Library Teen Room is hosting the Boston Youth Fund(BYF) on Saturday, February 16th. From 11:30am-2pm we will be having a job fair where Boston resident teens, age 15-17, will be able to register for a summer job through BYF and check out the various organizations that BYF works with.
As the City of Boston’s teen employment program, the Boston Youth Fund provides thousands of Boston teens between the ages of 15 and 17 with job opportunities during the summer months. The Boston Youth Fund participants work in a variety of jobs within community, faith-based, and government agencies. Positions include administrative assistants, mural painters, peer leaders and many more!
At the job fair:
- More than 100 organizations will be present to talk to about summer job opportunities for Boston resident teens.
- Bringing a resume with you is recommended, but not required.
- Some organizations will either conduct a short onsite interview or will schedule one for another date.
- Computers will be available in the Teen Room for filling out job applications via the Hopeline, and BYF staff will be able to help with the process.
