In partnership with the Department of Youth Engagement and Employment’s (DYEE) YouthWorks Program, SOAR Boston is looking to hire 15 youth and young adults between the ages of 15-24, to participate in the YouthWorks work-readiness curriculum and career exploration, as a summer employment opportunity.
The Early and Career Trajectory Work Experiences tier of YouthWorks is designed to match participants with subsidized employment opportunities that foster transferable skills. Whether the placement is a participant’s first job or an opportunity to build on previous work experience, YouthWorks subsidized placements are work-based learning opportunities with the rigor and authenticity of paid employment realities and responsibilities.
15 youth and young adults will participate in a curriculum consisting of twelve required and three of eleven electives. Each topic/session is designed to run for 60 minutes. Participants will receive at least 15 hours of training. The curriculum will be offered in tandem with well-planned career exploration components such as employer panel discussions, informational interviews or guided research and share-outs. In addition, the participants will be placed in a City of Boston department as a career exploration opportunity to put their training into practice.
