YouthWorks

YouthWorks is a state-funded youth employment program for teens and young adults aged 14 to 21 living in low-income communities across Massachusetts. 
YouthWorks increases the employment of teens through partnerships that prepare, coach, and support teens in job search and job success.
During the summer, participants work up to 25 hours per week at public, private, and nonprofit worksites. Participants also take part in job-readiness workshops to help them acclimate to their jobs. In many cases, a YouthWorks placement serves as a young person's first job.
