Mission Statement

St. Stephen's Youth Programs' goal is to transform communities, one young person at a time. We strive to support young people, who are often surrounded by risks, on the road to successful adulthood. To do this, 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). We believe long-term, year-round relationships with students from ages 5-25 are the key to lasting transformation. We collaborate with and coordinate other care givers and community resources including parents, teachers and schools to provide each child with a comprehensive circle of care. We offer professional development, leadership training, and community organizing opportunities so that all young people can become civic leaders who take action for positive change in their neighborhoods.

Description

The B-SAFE Program (Bishop’s Summer Academic & Fun Enrichment Program) provides safe, enriching activities
for hundreds of Boston youth and teens. The program strives to build a loving community; to broaden the horizons of our young people through academics, the arts, athletics, technology training and educational field trips; and to provide meaningful jobs for teens. The B-SAFE program is designed to respond to the needs and challenges of young people in neighborhoods in and around Boston. Our integrated youth programs have the over-arching philosophy to help children "Feel Safe, Feel Big, and Feel Connected."
