Jobs for Youth - Boston (JFY), in partnership with the cities of Lynn and Somerville, was awarded $475,000 to develop and implement a Brownfields Job Training pilot program. Over two years, 43 participants completed JFY’s training program, all of whom were employed after graduation from the program. Prior to entering this program, many participants were unemployed, ‘welfare to work’, or otherwise disadvantaged. After completing the program, they are now employed full-time and earning living wages with full benefits.
