Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce, in partnership with the Everett Chamber of Commerce, a new program to help staff local businesses and provide Everett’s youths opportunities to work in various career fields. As part of Mayor DeMaria’s “Everett for Everyone” initiative, the City of Everett would like to give young adults in Everett an opportunity to gain work experience while also helping local businesses during a time when rising costs are adding to the financial hardship of running a company. The Everett Chamber of Commerce will be assisting the City in connecting to local businesses to offer youth workers ages 17-25 a chance to receive extra help at no cost to the company.

  This new program is an extension of the City’s Summer Youth Program, which has been operating for over 25 years, providing summer job opportunities to Everett’s youths. Through this program, Everett’s youths gain work experience and networking skills and develop new skill sets. The expansion of the program is possible due to funding from the Metro North Workforce Board.

  “I’ve wanted to expand our Summer Youth Program to run throughout the year,” said Mayor DeMaria. “By giving our City’s youth the opportunity to work for local businesses, we’re able to help them network and receive valuable work experience while also assisting our businesses here in Everett.”

  Everett businesses are encouraged to email Roberto.Valasquez@ci.everett.ma.us or Briana.Hyppolite@ci.everett.ma.us to express your interest and learn more information.
