The Boston Bar Foundation is proud to support a number of internships for students in the Summer Jobs Program. The BBF Board of Trustees approved the funding of jobs for 10 Boston Public high school students this summer, kicking off recruitment for the 2014 BBA Summer Jobs Program. BBF students selected through the program will gain valuable paid work experience at non-profit community organizations, government offices and the courts, and participate in weekly financial literacy enrichment seminars. Read about the Summer Jobs experience from the 2013 BBF students.
A donation of $3,000 can fund a summer job for a student. Join our efforts and make a contribution today. To learn more about hiring a student at your firm, please visit the BBA website here.
Over the past 20 years, the BBA has introduced over 640 young adults to the legal profession. The principal program aim is to help Boston Public school students learn about the law and the legal profession through firsthand, on-the-job experience. A long-term goal is to increase diversity and inclusion in Boston's legal community.
