Roxbury Youth Programs
Summer Employment Program
During the summer, RYP partners with Boston Youth Fund to provide up to 15 teens with summer employment. The six-week Summer Employment Program runs from early July to mid-August, with participating youth earning a paycheck for working on various community issues. The summer program ends with a student-organized community event held at the UU Urban Ministry's campus at First Church in Roxbury. During the course of the summer program, the youth learn many useful skills, such as resume writing, interviewing and event planning, as well as new tools such as project planning software.
