Mayor Menino Announces Registration for Summer Jobs

Hopeline participants will serve at over 300 worksites ranging from city departments to community based organizations in Boston

Today, Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the Boston Youth Fund announced that the annual Hopeline online registration for 2011 for summer jobs will open on February 1 and close on March 4. For more than 20 years, the Boston Youth Fund (BYF) has employed Boston youth in a variety of positions across the City of Boston.

The majority of teens work as camp counselors, tutors and mentors placed in nonprofit organizations that serve younger children through camps, sports and enrichment programs. Participants will serve at over 300 worksites ranging from City Departments to community and faith based organizations in the Boston area. 

The Hopeline is the only application process for the City of Boston Summer Jobs Program and is only open for a limited time. Potential employees must be registered on the Hopeline in order to work for the Boston Youth Fund. Although registering through the Hopeline is encouraged, it does not guarantee a summer job.
