Demand for Summer Jobs Highlights Importance of BBA Program

A recent Boston Globe piece highlights the difficulty faced by Boston teens looking for summer jobs. Whether it’s to build their resumes, help earn for their families, for personal fulfillment, or all of the above – Boston students are competing for a smaller number of seasonal positions than in years past.

Fortunately, the Boston Bar Association and many other organizations in the city have once again stepped up to support Mayor Walsh’s Summer Jobs Initiative, which aims to provide 11,000 teens with employment this summer. To date, 40 employers have committed to hiring 58 students, giving them the chance to gain real-world experience in a professional setting.

We would like to thank our Summer Jobs Sponsors for 2016!
