This is an 8 hour per week afterschool commitment that runs until June.

Students who are enrolled in grade 9 or grade 10 (up to age 15) can apply for acceptance into the program. The jobs are primarily located in various schools in the district. The students’ wages ($8.80/hr.) are paid for by the City of Cambridge and they can work UP TO 10 hours a week. They must be supervised by an adult at all times. Please email Jaci Rubin to learn more information.
