Registering for summer jobs in Boston
Posted on March 4, 2018
Interested applicants can now register for summer jobs in Boston.
SuccessLink is an online tool that enables Boston youth to register for summer jobs. The SuccessLink application will be available through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 30, 2018. Teens can apply 24 hours a day on the BCYF Youth Engagement & Employment (YEE) Division website on youth.boston.gov.
“The summer youth jobs program is an important opportunity that helps provide many of our young people with the chance to build lifelong skills and confidence, and begin their professional career,” said Mayor Walsh. “I encourage all Boston teens to take a look at the SuccessLink portal and register for a summer job that aligns with their passions.”
“The City of Boston is committed to serving its youth by facilitating meaningful employment that sets the foundation for future success,” said Health and Human Services Chief Marty Martinez. “The summer youth jobs program works to empower youth by connecting them through jobs to mentorship and guidance, and promotes skill building and networking opportunities that create lasting professional pathways to success.”
Through SuccessLink, young people can register for the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Program, get connected to resources and join civic engagement initiatives designed to empower youth. Applicants will be able to manage and update their information online.
“This is my first job and it’s giving me experience in communication so that I can benefit in the future,” said Alex Tieu, a sophomore at Josiah Quincy Upper School, who works at BCYF’s Youth Engagement & Employment office helping youth obtain employment. “It’s important for me to work so I can increase my professional development. And I hope while working with YEE, I can help other young people who are also just starting their first job.”
