Download 2018 MSYEP Application.

This six-week summer job program for Cambridge residents runs from July 2 to August 10. The program serves teens who are 14 years (as of July 2, 2018) to 18 years.

Teens are placed in public sector and non-profit jobs throughout the city. They work twenty hours a week, and are paid by the City of Cambridge. One third of the youth are placed in Summer Work and Learning sites, which offer participants a valuable educational and employment experience using the community’s resources to expose youth to potential educational or career paths.

All youth participate in skill-building workshops for one hour each week and have the opportunity to attend college tours, financial literacy training, and a variety of program-sponsored social events during the summer.
