Youth Employment

The Office of Workforce Development (OWD) offers a variety of Youth Employment Programs and services to Cambridge teens and young adults, their families and programs that support them.

The Youth Employment Center (YEC) is located in Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, room 2101, and is open every school day during lunch, and Tuesday-Thursday after school. We have plenty of job listings to share with teens, and teens can get help with online applications, resume writing, and interview preparation. Teens who don’t attend CRLS or who can’t make those times can access the YEC team by appointment by emailing

OWD also serves as a coordinating entity for many youth serving programs in Cambridge, through the Reaching All Youth (RAY) Committee, we bring together more than two dozen agencies to share information, best practices and training opportunities and to work on common issues. For more information about RAY, contact Nadia Davila at
