We are currently accepting applications for the new revamped LIT Program.  The new program will continue to focus on Job Readiness skills and will also include:  Positive Youth Development, Substance Abuse Prevention, Team Building, and opportunities to learn about available jobs and careers in the local and surround communities.  Youth will be mentored and helped to gain positions or internships in the career areas that interest them. 

This year due to being unable to have our summer sessions during summer 2020, we are instead hosting two, 10-week sessions beginning in January and late March 2021. 

  • Session 1 will begin on January 5th, 2021 and run on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings, from 5pm-7:30 pm here at the Somerville YMCA Youth Center, until March 18th, 2021.  The program will not meet during the February School Vacation week.  Dinner will be provided.
  • Session 2 will begin on March 30th, 2021 and also run on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings, from 5pm-7:30 pm here at the Somerville YMCA Youth Center until Thursday June 10, 2021.  The program will not meet during the April Vacation Week.  Dinner will be provided.

Youth that complete the program session and attend 90% of all weekly meeting dates will receive a $200.00 stipend.

If interested in applying please fill out the 2020 LIT Application ASAP.  You may return the application to the YMCA Front Desk, or fax it to 617-628-2234 or e-mail it as an attachment to Matthew O’Donnell at modonnell@k12.somerville.ma.us
