Summer Jobs Program Set to Exceed Last Year's Total

The list of BBA Summer Jobs employers is growing at record pace, currently offering 54 jobs, only one job short of last year’s total, with a full month until the program begins. The program, a partnership of the Boston Public Schools and the Private Industry Council, has helped over 385 urban youth learn essential workplace skills and gain exposure to the legal profession since its inception in 1993. Has your firm committed to hiring a student?
