In Their Own Words: What Your Casino Night Ticket Supports

One of the events we look forward to most every year is our Casino Night fundraiser for our Summer Jobs Program, which gives Boston public school students the chance to earn money and gain real-world experience that will help them in college and beyond.

Recently, some students that have participated in the program in the past checked back in with the BBA staff to tell us all about the incredible things they’ve been doing, and how the Summer Jobs Program helped them find their path to success.

Here is what your Casino Night tickets supports, in the students’ own words:
“After the Summer Jobs Program, LPL Financial hired me to stay there for an extended period of time. I worked through December and then applied for a co-op through my college, Bunker Hill Community College, and so I’m currently working within Compliance and Asset Management for Fidelity Investments! Seeing BBA on my resume really intrigues employers, it was such a fulfilling experience. I’m looking to apply for a couple scholarships, as I’ve recently been inducted in Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society.”

“My name was Yujia Song, and I worked for Goodwin Procter during the summer of 2014. I just wanted to say that I’m doing well. I ended up attending BU with a scholarship, and I’m finishing up my freshman year right now. I also recently became a United States citizen, and changed my name to Alex Song, so that has been very exhilarating.”

“Currently I am a sophomore UMass Boston majoring in Management and Economics. I am thankful to have been an intern under the BBA. My internship helped me network and gain excellent world experience.”
