Mayor Marty Walsh is at it again! You may remember this video of the Mayor making calls to companies last year in an effort to secure more summer jobs for Boston teens. According to this Boston Globe article, the Mayor and his Cabinet chiefs called more than 160 local businesses—including a few legal offices—last Friday to get them onboard for the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Program. Just as a reminder, the BBA Summer Jobs Program is an integral part of the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Program, which aims to secure summer jobs for over 10,000 Boston teens each year. In fact, we are one of the top ten largest private sector employers in the city.

Volunteer Jeanette DeMasi and Megan Fein from Liberty Mutual talk students at Boston Latin High School about financing a car.
It’s no surprise that the never-ending snow this winter caused a few hiccups in the M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program . Nevertheless, our dedicated volunteers braved the elements (and the trains!) to travel to high schools throughout the state to teach students about the importance of making sound financial decisions. We want to extend a special shout out to Liberty Mutual, the Security and Exchange Commission, and Sun Life Financial for adopting classrooms through the program. In this model, the legal offices committed to providing 3-6 volunteers to cover each of the three classroom-based sessions.

Please note: this list does not include everyone who offered to help. A number of other individuals stepped up to volunteer as well, but unfortunately due to snow days and changes in the school calendar, their sessions were cancelled. Additionally, the program’s still underway. Students begin heading to the Boston and Worcester Bankruptcy Courts next week to learn about the consequences of making poor financial decisions. Stay tuned for more.
