Each summer the BBA’s Summer Jobs Students are placed in
law firms and offices across Boston for paid summer internships, thanks to a
partnership between the BBA, Private Industry Council and Mayor’s Office.
However, the program doesn’t stop there. Throughout the course of the summer the
students participate in a variety of enrichment programs that promote civil
engagement, introduce students to the courts and help students develop life
skills. The BBA’s M.
Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program is a core element of the
student’s summer education.
BBA Public Service Manager Sonia Shah
explains: “The Summer Jobs students have been part of the Financial Literacy
program since the very beginning as one of the pilot groups. Integrating
financial literacy into the program teaches the students what to do with the
money they are earning and provides them with tangible life skills to take with
them once the program ends.”
With the recruitment process for Summer
Jobs Program still underway, the financial
literacy sessions during the summer will expand the program to at
least 53 additional students.
