Summer Jobs May be at Risk for Teens – The Boston Globe

Category : Other Stuff

The sour economy is threatening local summer job programs for city teenagers, a decades-old safety net designed to keep youth off the streets and prevent violence during the bloodiest months of the year.

This is bad news for a great program, and this news  from Aaron Tanimoto, the agency’s program director that a lot of work sites are telling the agency that they can’t take as many  because entry-level positions that were in the past filled by high school students are being snapped up by college students, isn’t good for high school students anywhere.

But people are still posting jobs on, and businesses are still hiring. Make a resume, get creative, and go out and find that summer job.
