Mission Statement

To equip all students we serve with the attitude, skills and experience to graduate from college and positively impact their community.

Description

In the neighborhoods of Dorchester less than one quarter of the adult population has a college degree. College Bound Dorchester works to ensure that all students view success in college as not just a possibility in their lives but as a baseline expectation.

Everyday College Bound Dorchester's educators work with diverse populations between 3 months to 80 years of age, including at-risk youth, newly arrived immigrants and families struggling to provide educational support to their children. In each program, College Bound Dorchester provides educational services to the underserved and lays the foundation for future academic, economic and social success. By providing a continuum of services, College Bound Dorchester ensures that no student gets lost on their path to higher education and that all students have the tools to realize their goals. This work has the ability to not only increase the number of college graduates in Dorchester, but to also shift the community’s mindset about college. This shift, from one of limited possibilities to one of high aspirations for all, will ultimately have transformative impact on the community’s socio-economic development.
