Welcome to the SuccessLink Teen Employment Program

Mayor Martin J. Walsh & The City of Boston Department of Youth Engagement & Employment are excited to announce the launch of the 2018-19 School Year SuccessLink Employment Program! The City of Boston has partnered with hundreds of community-based and nonprofit organizations across the city to provide meaningful employment opportunities to thousands of Boston youth ages 15 to 18. Participants can work in various positions that include after-school program assistant, administrative assistants, mural painters, peer leaders and many more!


For the school year, Youth Engagement & Employment (YEE) will post job opportunities for youth to apply to directly.  Once youth have applied, partner organizations may reach out to youth to interview and select them for their available jobs.


Teens interested in applying must meet the following requirements:


  • Must be a full-time resident of the City of Boston
  • Must turn 15 years old on or before Monday November 26, 2018
  • Cannot turn 19 years old, on or before Friday, April 26, 2019
  • Must be legally permitted to work in the United States

Starting in November, teens will be able to apply for jobs at organizations that will be hosting teens through the SuccessLink program. Youth will be prompted to create a profile for SuccessLink and then apply directly to open positions that align with their interests.


Onboarding and Paperwork Completion: Applicants that accept job placements will be emailed instructions on how to fill out the necessary hiring paperwork along with a checklist of required documents. They will be able to log-in to the profile using the email and password they used to make their SuccessLink account to fill out the paperwork and upload required documents. After they have completed the paperwork online, they will then be asked to bring their original documents to the YEE team to be verified and complete the hiring process!
