WORCESTER, Mass. — A lot of teenagers wouldn’t choose to spend their summer in a classroom, but these students are.
“It’s hard to get jobs as teenagers,” Jade Hill said. “Here, they let you work and they pay you and they treat you like an adult.”
Jade Hill is one of the seven student mentors at Abby Kelley Foster Charter School in Worcester. She works 25 hours a week with first to fifth graders, helping them with everything from classwork to life skills.
