Welcome to the SuccessLink Youth Employment Program

Mayor Martin J. Walsh & the City of Boston Department of Youth Engagement & Employment are excited to announce the launch of the 2019-2020 SuccessLink School Year Employment Program! Every year, the City of Boston partners 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.  There are opportunities to work in a wide variety of job fields like the arts, government & advocacy, STEM, sports & recreation, childcare, education, and more!

THE PROCESS: 

 

For the season, Youth Engagement & Employment (YEE) will post job opportunities for youth to apply for directly. Youth may apply for up to 15 positions. Once youth have completed their application for the organizations that they are interested in working with, partner organizations may reach out to youth to interview and select them.

 

Youth 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 for available positions that align with their interests.

 

Onboarding and Paperwork Completion: Youth applicants who accept job placements will be emailed instructions on how to fill out the necessary hiring paperwork along with a checklist of required documents

 

Youth should log-in to their SuccessLink profile using the email and password they used to make their SuccessLink account to fill out 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!
