MPDC Youth Employment Program Employs 64 Teens This Summer

08.01.2016

MPDC’s Summer Youth Employment Program is underway and we’re excited to announce that 64 teenagers received jobs this summer — our highest number of youth employed to date!

Youth workers are assigned to work sites during the week and also required to participate in a four-week financial literacy workshop sponsored by Citizens Bank focused on money management skills.  This summer MPDC has also partnered with the Roxbury Innovation Center to provide our youth leaders with a series of STEM-based educational experiences such as coding and website development.

The summer youth employment program runs from July 5 – August 19. ┬áTo learn more, contact Erica Davis, Youth Employment Manager, at 617-849-6243 or edavis@madison-park.org.
