Career Opportunities

West End House is the largest youth development agency in the Allston-Brighton community providing high-impact programs that ensure that our young people are succeeding academically, exploring, and mastering the arts, developing career readiness skills, and adopting healthy lifestyles. Operating since 1906, today’s West End House welcomes approximately 1000 young people each year who represent more than 40 different countries and 10 languages.  Our commitment is to ensure Boston’s children and teens have access to opportunities to help them thrive.  West End House serves young people throughout Allston-Brighton and across Boston’s neighborhoods, including Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park, Fenway, Roslindale, South Boston, and East Boston.  We are bold in our commitment and efforts to become an anti-racist, equitable organization and welcome candidates with a passion for this work.

Our mission is to inspire and enable youth from all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.  We are proud of our impact in the community, some of which is highlighted below:

  • Our COVID-19 response included launching an in-person Learning Hubs initiative for students to attend remote school and we were 1 of only 3 sites citywide to serve teens in our Hubs; we also launched a Family Food Program that has distributed over 550,000 lbs. of groceries to our families and community members.
  • Unparalleled service to teens: Prior to the pandemic, West End House served more teens than 98% of Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. And the teens who come to West End House are graduating high school and enrolling in college at a greater rate than their peers across the state.
  • We are the only Boys & Girls Club on the East Coast to dedicate full-time staff and resources to supporting our students in college.
  • Our arts programs attract and engage as many young people as our recreational offerings and are designed to advance young people from exposure to engagement to pathways in visual arts, music, digital arts, dance, and more.

Today, West End House has a staff of over 30 highly collaborative team members, a dedicated Board of Directors, and an annual budget of more than $3.9 million. As a mark of our commitment to the success of both our staff and youth participants, our club’s program staff are full time employees.
