The Federation’s Workforce Success Initiative, STudents Are Ready (STAR) program, will identify and address challenges transition-age students and families face when considering employment after high school.
Want to give your input?
Here are the service areas and more.
We need to hear from youth and young adults in Boston:
- young adults
- who may have experienced homelessness
- who may be or have been in state or foster care
- who may have a disability
- underserved community
Additional qualifying criteria:
Students with disabilities face greater challenges to completing high school and finding gainful employment than other groups of students. Students with disabilities can also experience bias as a result of cultural heritage and/or race.
We are looking for the experiences of youth, families, and transition professionals in Boston neighborhoods.
Families and young adults must live in the cities and towns listed below.
Allston, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Boston, Brighton, Brookline, Charlestown, Chelsea, Dedham, Dorchester, East Boston, Jamaica Plain, Kenmore Square, North End, Revere, Roslindale, South Boston, West End, and West Roxbury.
Hyde Park, Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan, and the South End of Boston.
