Youth Programs


Just-A-Start’s (JAS) TeenWork program provides Cambridge youth from low and middle-income households with career development and employment services. Youth who enroll in the program will obtain work maturity soft skills by attending a job readiness workshop that will cover exploring career interests, developing a resume, searching and applying for jobs, and preparing for interviews. Upon completion of the workshop, youth will be supported with securing employment and will receive one-on-one career coaching for up to one calendar year.

This program will be offered periodically throughout the academic year. At times, the program will be facilitated as a 4-week series of workshops; at other times, it may be facilitated as a single afternoon workshop.
