Mission Statement

Our goal is to transform communities, one young person at a time. To help disadvantaged young people on the road to successful adulthood, we provide out-of-school time academic support and enrichment through two core programs: our after-school program (B-READY) and our summer program (B-SAFE). Key features of our program model are: long-term, year-round relationships with students, from elementary school to secondary education; collaboration with other care givers including parents, teachers and schools; and leveraging and coordinating community resources to provide each child with a comprehensive circle of care.

Description

During the summer months, our four-week B-SAFE program helps to keep more than 525 young people safe and prevents summer learning loss. B-SAFE is offered at our two B-READY after-school program sites, as well as four other locations across Boston and Chelsea. Academic activities are balanced with enrichment and recreation activities that create a fun summer camp experience. The program also provides more than 100 quality summer jobs for teens, helping young people from the program stay connected, earn money, and gain work skills.
