City unveils new online tools for teen summer jobs

The City recently announced a new online tool called “SuccessLink” that allows teenagers to apply for summer jobs, according to a press release.

SuccessLink, which replaces Boston Youth Fund’s HOPELINE, also allows applicants to connect with the City’s Department of Youth Engagement and Employment and its services, which include peer-led personal and career development workshops, scholarships and civic-engagement opportunities.

“It is time for our young people and families to start making summer plans now and we want to give them all of the tools to do so. We are opening up the SuccessLink so that teens can register for employment, and we have extended registration from four weeks to nearly eight weeks to give all of our young people a chance to connect with us,” said Mayor Martin Walsh, according to the press release.

Job opportunities for teens include positions with the Boston Police Department, New England Aquarium, Zoo New England and radio stations.

Applications are available until March 27. For more information, visit
