Just-A-Start’s TeenWork program provides career development services to low and middle-income high school youth living in Cambridge who are seeking employment. Youth can enter the program during the fall and spring academic semesters, working one-on-one with career coaches to discuss career goals and next steps. Youth who enroll in the program will obtain work maturity soft skills by attending job readiness workshops that will cover exploring career options, developing a cover letter and resume, searching and applying for jobs, and preparing for interviews. Youth will be supported with securing employment during the academic year or during the summer and will continue to receive career counseling support services for up to one calendar year following program completion.
