|Mayor Menino Announces Hopeline Dates for Summer Job Opportunities
Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced today that the City of Boston's Hopeline will be open on Tuesday, Feb. 21, through Thursday, Feb. 23 for city teens to register for summer jobs. This will be the only opportunity teens have to register for a summer job with the city this year. Last year, approximately 6,000 young people called the Hopeline.
"The Hopeline is a great opportunity for the young people of Boston to have a productive and great summer," Mayor Menino said. "I encourage teens in the city to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity."
The Hopeline is the registrar for a job-pool provided by the Boston Youth Fund, through a partnership between local non-profit organizations and the City of Boston. Close to 200 organizations apply annually to the program. Jobs vary by organization, but have included employment at summer camps, cultural organizations, daycare centers, and the New England Aquarium.
All those who register must qualify for the following criteria.
* Must be a resident of the City of Boston
* Must turn 15 years old on or before July 9, 2006
* Cannot turn 18 years old on or before August 18, 2006
