BOSTON — Attorney General Maura Healey  announced that her office is awarding more than $262,000 in grant funding to 70 organizations across the state to fund summer jobs for young people that are focused on promoting health and wellness.
 
In Berkshire County, Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition, the Berkshire South Regional Community Center and Greenagers in South Egremont will receive funding to support jobs for young people.
 
"For eight years, we've worked closely with inspiring organizations in every corner of the state to create safe, positive summer experiences for young people," said Healey. "These summer jobs provide Massachusetts teens with invaluable opportunities to challenge themselves, gain new skills, and make a difference in their own communities by promoting healthy living." 
 
This is the eighth year that the AG's Office is running the Healthy Summer Youth Jobs Grant Program, which enables teens and young people to have a direct impact in their communities by working in jobs that promote good nutrition, healthy living and professional development. The grant program is funded with fair labor related settlement money from the AG's Office.
