YouthWorks Connects Western Mass Teens with Summer Jobs

When school is out for the summer, life can get well boring for teenagers—although they might not admit it. Together with the New England Farm Workers Council, YouthWorks is holding a summer jobs kick-off this Friday at the Springfield Museums. YouthWorks helps connect western Mass young people ages 14 to 21 with summer jobs. Carolee McGrath sat down with Kathryn Kirby, the manager of youth workforce programs at MassHire, Haley King, the YouthWorks program coordinator, and Amaris Ramos, a YouthWorks employee, to find out more about the program.
