A new round of funding will help create Boston summer jobs.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino recently announced that the City of Boston’s summer jobs program will receive $4 million from the 2010 operating budget. Money for the program will come from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds, as well as state and local funding that will equal $9 million.
“A summer job is a short-term experience, but it yields long-term benefits – not just for the teen or the employer, but for our City,” Menino said in a press release. “Working together, we can continue to provide positive and enriching opportunities for our young people, creating a more vibrant future for Boston.”
