PUBLIC LANDS AND CAREER EXPLORATION
The Public Lands and Career Exploration (PLACE) Fellowship is a youth employment opportunity with the National Parks of Boston. The PLACE Fellowship empowers fellows with the skills and knowledge to successfully find and pursue careers that excite them, and fellows’ feedback is used to revise the program. Over the course of the fellowship, participants build a more complete understanding of career opportunities by exploring a range of regional parks and programs, learning important professional skills, and building valuable connections with park staff.
"This program has helped me realize that I have infinite job opportunities. I can choose and have a job at my age that I enjoy. I shouldn’t settle just because I get money, but work harder to find a job that I’d love - because it’s out there and I deserve it!" - Ariel, 18
