city departments to community based organizations in Boston

that the annual Hopeline online registration for 2011 for summer
jobs will open on February 1 and close on March 4. For more than 20
years, the Boston Youth Fund (BYF) has employed Boston youth in a
variety of positions across the City of Boston.
The majority of teens work as camp counselors, tutors and mentors
placed in nonprofit organizations that serve younger children
through camps, sports and enrichment programs. Participants will

community and faith based organizations in the Boston area.
