RECRUITING FOR BOSTON SUMMER JOBS!
Boston teens work Monday-Thursday from 11:00-6:00pm during the 7-week summer session. Join an upcoming Open House on Feb 20, March 5, and March 19. More details below.
Recruiting Boston teens (ages 14-18 years) for an AMAZING opportunity to work in one of our six creative studios—Painting, 3D Design, Graphic Design, Creative Technology (animation and coding), Video Production, and Photography!
Come work with a variety of fine art and design mediums in a creative studio setting. Work collaboratively with professional artists and designers, earn and learn new skills—all while providing creative services for AFH’s clients.
Artistic experience isn’t necessary, but a passion for creativity and learning—and earning—on the job is!
To qualify for a job at AFH, you must be:
A high school attendee or at least 14 years of age. All teens must be enrolled in and regularly attending a Boston Public School and/or a resident of Boston (this includes attending a night, day, homeschool, or G.E.D. program);
Able to attend every week during the program’s regular hours (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. during the school year; Monday – Thursday from 11:00 noon – 6:00 p.m. during the summer); and
Able to complete an unpaid apprenticeship period of 36 hours, which doubles as community service hours, before becoming a paid employee.
