Here's a chance for highly motivated DCF foster youth who are invested in their education to gain some real life experience. Businesses and community-based organizations around the state hire our teens for entry-level summer career positions. The employment program includes a training curriculum and ongoing support by DCF staff. Each adolescent is matched with an employer based on the needs and interests of both. The Employment Program offers youth an incredible opportunity to gain skills and experience. For more information, call the employment coordinator at (617) 748-2430. The Employment Program is open to youth who are 16 and older and in the care or custody of DCF.
