Massachusetts Nonprofits Share $326K to Support Summer Jobs

August 20, 2018 — The attorney general's office recently announced it has awarded $326,827, obtained from settlements, to 76 nonprofits across Massachusetts to help fund summer jobs for low-income young people, which focus on health and wellness.

“This program is focused not only on keeping young people safe and active during the summer, but on offering them a chance to challenge themselves and make a difference in their communities,” said Attorney General Maura Healey. “By directing the funding toward jobs that promote healthy living, we are aiming to tackle obesity and disease prevention in at-risk communities across the state – win-win for all.”

This year’s Healthy Summer Youth Jobs Grant Program will allow teens to hold jobs that will impact public health, including working at a community health center, leading cooking classes, and teaching nutrition or fitness at a summer camp, the AG's office said.
