Supporting Summer Jobs for Youth
April 04, 2019

MassHousing supports summer job opportunities for young people across Massachusetts through a number of community partners.

A MassHousing award allowed The Boston Project Ministries to employ 30 teenagers for a free summer park program that serves more than 100 elementary-school-aged children and produced a mural at Elmhurst Park in Dorchester.

The program helps drive attendance for The Boston Project Ministries’ Family Fun & Resource Night series at Elmhurst Park, which brings live cultural entertainment and fun, along with health, housing and educational resources for neighbors of all ages.
