SOMERVILLE – Attention Somerville Youth! The Mayor’s Summer Jobs Program is now accepting applications for summer 2017, and more than 100 Somerville teens will be selected to participate in the annual job program which pairs young job seekers with opportunities within City departments as well as with private business partners in Somerville. Applications are available through Friday, April 21, at 12:30 p.m., and can be picked up at the Personnel Department in City Hall, 93 Highland Ave. Due to high demand, late applications will not be accepted. Eligible students must be Somerville residents, enrolled in high school, and at least 16 years of age. For the first time, this year limited opportunities are available for youth that are at least 15 years of age as part of a pilot program.
Interviews for all applicants will be May 15 through May 19, and selected youth must complete an orientation prior to the beginning of the program. Summer jobs require approximately 20 hours per week, though actual schedules will vary by employer.
