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. 

We are hosting two, 10-week sessions beginning in October 5th, 2021. 

  • Session 1: October 5th to December 9th, 2021
  • Session 2: January 11th-March 24th, 2022 (*Program will not meet during the February School Vacation week)     

Youth that complete the program session and attend 90% of all weekly meeting dates will receive a $200 stipend.

If interested in applying please fill out the 2021-2022 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
