Giving Students the Skills they Need to Succeed

TeenWork is a free private-sector job placement program that helps carefully pre-screened Cambridge high school students secure summer and after-school jobs in settings where they do not traditionally have access.

Job shadowing experiences are available for selected industries. Program staff are available during the school year at the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School Youth Employment Center every Wednesday from 11 am to 1 pm. Staff are available year round at 1035 Cambridge Street, Unit 12, Cambridge, MA.
