BCYF SuperTeens Program

Youth ages 13-14 gain a high-quality service learning and leadership experience during July and August.

Applications for summer 2018 will be available this spring.

Youth in the SuperTeens Program will have the opportunity to:

  • attend weekly leadership development workshops
  • gain hands-on employment experience by working in BCYF community centers, and
  • participate in field trips to Boston’s arts and enrichment institutions. 

All SuperTeen applicants must complete an application. If you are looking to work at a specific community center, you must complete this application and contact the center to let them know.
