Youth Jobs!

Thanks to Beth Meserve at the Mystic River Watershed Association for sending this along!


Youth Jobs Program
Through a partnership with the National Park Service, Thompson Island Outward Bound offers job opportunities for youth age 14-18 from the greater Boston area. These jobs, which are based in the Boston Harbor Island National Park Area, are designed to develop life skills, workforce readiness, and environmental stewardship. Youth will experience hot, buggy conditions clearing trails, monitoring invasive species, and constructing public use features on the beautiful Harbor Islands, all while building teamwork, having a blast, and learning job skills. In addition to having the unique chance to contribute a youth perspective to park governance, youth will also be exposed to career paths with Outward Bound, National Park Service, and other “green collar” careers. We currently have two summer job offerings to which youth can apply: Green Corps and Island Ambassadors. (see website for more details)
