SUCCESSLINK REGISTRATION OPENS FEB. 25th! Boston Youth Zone Special Edition

The SuccessLink registration is almost here! Starting on February 25th, youth will be able to sign-up with SuccessLink and register for the employment lottery!

For the summer of 2017, Youth Engagement & Employment (YEE) will be using a lottery to select youth for these job opportunities. The first round of the lottery will begin April 3, 2017. Each applicant will be assigned a number which marks their position in the lottery after the SuccessLink application closes.

Here's how it works!


  • Must be a full-time resident of the City of Boston
  • Must turn 15 years old on or before Friday, August 18, 2017
  • Cannot turn 19 years old, on or before Friday, August 18, 2017
  • Must be legally permitted to work in the United States

Youth will create a profile for SuccessLink and then register to enter the summer jobs lottery. They will be asked to enter their names and contact information the fields of work they are interested in. This information will be used to match them to an open position if their name is drawn in the lottery!*

Employment Program Begins Monday July 10, 2017.

*Registering for the lottery with SuccessLink does not guarantee a job opportunity or a job placement. Applicants can visit BCYF Division of Youth Engagement & Employment at 1483 Tremont Street, Roxbury, or call 617-635-4202 for assistance with the application.
