The BBA’s Summer Jobs Program is part of the City of Boston’s efforts to employ Boston teens in meaningful positions each summer.
As our readers know, the City of Boston has always strived to secure summer jobs for Boston’s teens. In a recent Boston Globe article, Mayor Walsh stressed a new high water mark for the City’s Summer Jobs Program – to provide Boston youth with 12,000 jobs in the summer of 2014, a significant increase of the previous goal of 10,000 jobs. As a longtime partner of the City, the BBA and the sponsors of our Summer Jobs Program have stepped up to answer the call by hitting a record 59 positions and counting for Boston public high school students at law firms and legal agencies this summer, surpassing the program record of 58.
Is your employer on the list? Don’t miss the opportunity to support Boston’s future workforce by providing high schools students with an opportunity to gain professional experience and exposure to the legal field.
