  • Use Summer to Boost Scholarship Applications for Fall

    U.S. News & World Report - 06/09/2011

    Summer break is officially here for most American students: time off from early mornings, hitting the books, and taking tests. In years past, many teens looked to the summer months as a time to increase the hours they worked at their part-time jobs or take on summer gigs, such as babysitting, lifeguarding, and festival work. Unfortunately, the recession has taken a toll on teen employment; today, according to a report by the Center for Labor Market Studies (CLMS) at Northeastern University, “The Steep Decline in Teen Summer Employment in the U.S., 2000-2010 and the Bleak Outlook for the 2011 Summer Teen Job Market,” only about a quarter of teens can find paying jobs.
