In any direction within a 1/2 hour drive of Boston has to have economic opportunities for someone just starting out on their first job.

I'm just gonna shotgun a few links for you to check. I hope something's useful.
Look at section F when you scroll down on this link:
Dive into the deep water and call the Secretary of the Dept. of Labor & Work Force Development.
Here's the number: 617-626-7100
Ask them what sort of opportunities someone your age has.
Here's an interesting resource for legal matters involving state employment laws.
If you really want to be the ATS member on the inside, here's government jobs.
Most Y.M.C.A. organizations have youth job placement programs, so that might be worth a look.
I'm not suggesting this applies to you, but a link to information for troubled youth seeking employment. An organization called YouthWorks.
The more contacts you put out there the better your chances of finding that perfect job. And one funny thing, it's when you have a job that you gain
the contacts to find a better job.
If you narrow down the area around Boston that you live we can start watching the classified ads in local papers and look for other opportunities that
might be right for you.
If you need help putting together a basic resume for your first job there are on-line services that give you a format to work with that includes your
scholastic record, extracurricular activities, and interests.
Your school may even have a service to help students find job placement.
If you want any help putting a resume together let me know. Just don't post any personal information in a thread.
Just remember, at your age anything is possible and you have the time to carry out your dreams.
