BCYF Youth Engagement & Employment
The BCYF Division of Youth Engagement & Employment is a one-stop engagement and resource center. We connect, advocate, and serve young residents in Boston. We help youth develop necessary skills and abilities they need in life. In our work, we:
- connect teens ages 15-18 to summer and school-year jobs
- engage Boston’s youth in civic process, and
- provide opportunities for youth career development.
This summer, BCYF's Division of Youth Engagement & Employment is launching Ever-Fi with John Hancock Financial.
Ever-Fi is a curriculum to help young people in Boston become more financially literate. Ever-Fi is a series of online financial literacy modules. This new initiative will enhance youth workforce development skills through short learning activities. Each activity encourages young people to think about real-world financial challenges.
At the completion of this program, students will gain an understanding of:
- checking accounts
- credit cards
- mobile banking
- financing higher education
- 529 Plans
- taxes, and
