This placement is with the Teens Lead @ Work program at the Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health (MassCOSH). MassCOSH strives to ensure that all workers earn their living and return home alive and well. MassCOSH unites workers, unions and community groups with environmental and health activists, to end dangerous work conditions, to organize for safe, secure jobs, and to advocate for healthy communities. Through training, technical assistance and building community/labor alliances, MassCOSH mobilizes its members and develops leaders in the movement to end unsafe work conditions.
Teens Lead @ Work provides an empowering environment where teens develop their organizing skills, reach out to other teen workers, and promote safe, healthy work opportunities as well as strong enforcement of child labor laws. The program builds bridges among native-born, documented and undocumented teens in the fight for young worker rights.
