WorkSMART

We’ll give you academic and social supports to help you excel at school while exploring a career path through a paid internship.

Who Qualifies?

If you’re a Boston high school student in 9th or 10th grade,
we encourage you to apply.

PUT YOUR ENERGY AND IDEAS TO WORK

We work with the Boston Public Schools, local employers, community organizations and others to help you graduate high school, pursue further education, or land a great job.

WorkSMART is about learning to balance school and work while building the skills and confidence to succeed at both. During an 8 week internship, you’ll work 10 hours a week on a schedule that aligns with your school hours. We’ll partner with you to develop a personal and career development plan, and you’ll receive two hours of tutoring and counseling each week.

We’ll make every effort to find a job that matches your interests. Participants are also guaranteed a place in the ABCD SummerWorks program, as well as a yearly WorkSMART placement until you graduate high school.
