For 50 years ABCD has provided basic services and innovative programs that help empower individuals, families, and communities in Boston to overcome poverty, live with dignity, and achieve their full potential.

Please find the attached flyers on ABCD's upcoming youth programs – YEA! and SummerWorks.

YEA! - Youth Engaged in Action (YEA!) is a three-week course offered to 200 income-eligible middle-school youth. YEA builds on their ability to become young leaders through awareness, advocacy and the opportunity to take action. Throughout the session, they will learn how government works, how to take positive action on challenges that face our environment and how financial wellness is important for themselves and their communities at large. Apply here.

SummerWorks - For 50 years, ABCD has provided summer jobs to low-income youth throughout Boston. In 2013, SummerWorks provided over nearly 1,000 Boston youth with a summer job within one of 164 partner worksites throughout the city. ABCD SummerWorks is more than a summer job. Participants receive guidance, work readiness and life skills training to learn about resume writing, financial education, conflict resolution and workplace etiquette. Apply at www.summerworks.net.
