Who We Are.

As part of the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development, Youth Options Unlimited Boston (YOU Boston) is a youth development program that specializes in providing case management services and career development opportunities to Boston-area teens and young adults.


Who We Serve.

YOU Boston serves young people ages 14-24, who may be court-involved, gang-affiliated, or at-risk. All of the young people we work with are dealing with barriers to stable employment and educational attainment. However, there is no typical YOU Boston member. Our clients come from a diverse spectrum in regards to their home life, education status, court involvement, and work history. Every young person we employ is held to high standards of professionalism, commitment, and attendance.


What you’ll be doing:

The daily duties of the Baking and Pastry Arts Instructor include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Instruct and guide a cohort of 15 youth between the ages of 14 and 24 in weekly project-based career-specific training.
  2. Teach participants core concepts in food safety, baking theory and methodology through hands-on development and exploration of American and international style baking and pastry products.
  3. Plan, design, and execute a project-based curriculum, including daily hands-on activities and a capstone project.
  4. Place bi-weekly orders of food supplies (reimbursement will be provided for the cost of ingredients and mileage).
  5. Organize food supply packages for each cohort participant, biweekly.
  6. Conduct three two-hour live instructional training sessions per week via Zoom.
  7. Complete training assessments on each participant.
  8. Encourage complex thinking, participation, and discussion by all youth participants.
  9. Monitor youth participant’s weekly progress.
  10. Work independently and report to the Assistant Deputy Director of Programming.
  11. Work collaboratively with YOU Boston staff to ensure the safety and progress of all youth participants.


Who we are looking for:

We are looking for strong and creative leaders; those with experience and/or an interest in working with young people. This position requires a high level of organizational and interpersonal skills. Applicants must be able to efficiently design and lead workshops, manage a project, work collaboratively as part of a team, and communicate effectively with staff and youth.


Requirements and Notes for Consideration:

●      Preferred bachelor’s degree or proof of certification training in at least one of the following areas: Culinary Arts, Baking & Pastry Arts, Education, Youth Development, or Business Administration

●      Resume required

●      Hourly Pay is $25.00 at 21 hours per week, equaling 6 hours of instruction and 15 hours of prep time.
