Youthscapers is a nonprofit yard-work company based out of the Brookline Teen Center. Youthscapers employs high school aged youth who have little to no job experience and want to change that. Youthscapers provides supported skill development, a fair wage, and real world work experience while providing a valuable service to the community.  Through this job, teens gain confidence, self-discipline, develop a strong work ethic, and will have an overall better understanding of their strengths and capabilities.  Furthermore, teens participating in this program will significantly improve their outlook for obtaining and maintaining future jobs.
