At least 40% more young workers will be hired this year through the summer jobs program of Action for Boston Community Development, the local anti-poverty agency known by its acronym, ABCD.
In the past few years, ABCD has offered between 1,000 and 1,200 summer jobs to Boston teens. This summer they are looking to hire 1,700. The program, called SummerWorks, connects 14- to 21-year-olds to summer jobs with nonprofits in neighborhoods and communities across Boston.
