Students invited to apply for Summer Green Teen Employment Program

The City of Hoboken is looking for high school students ages 16-18 for its Summer Green Teen Employment Program. The Program seeks to recruit young Hoboken residents who are committed to improving our parks, streets, and public places.

Employees in the Summer Green Teen Employment Program will undergo an orientation and initial 10 hours of paid training in green infrastructure maintenance, urban forestry, and parks maintenance/beautification, following which they will become City employees providing seasonal part-time assistance to the Department of Environmental Services.

Through this program, trainees will learn valuable skills that may lead to future employment opportunities in the increasingly relevant field of green infrastructure, which is the use of trees and plants to absorb rainfall, reduce flooding, and improve water quality and public health. Trainees will be responsible for shade tree maintenance, park cleanup, and green infrastructure installation and maintenance.

This program is open to high school students ages 16-18. Interested participants are invited to apply at either of the following recruitment workshops:

Tuesday, May 28  4 PM -  7 PM        
Hoboken Housing Authority: 220 Adams Street
Community Room

Thursday, May 30  4 PM - 7 PM

Hoboken City Hall: 94 Washington Street
Ground Floor Conference Room

For those unable to attend either of the workshops, applications are available at the following location:

Division of Personnel
City Hall – 94 Washington St. 3rd floor
Applications Due: June 10, 2018.

Interviews will take place: June 17-24, 2019

This is a six-week employment program that will run from July 8, 2019 – August 19, 2019.
Hours of employment are 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. For the full description of a Summer Green Teen Employee, visit
