Mission Statement

The Mission of Boston Centers for Youth & Families is to enhance the quality of life for Boston's residents by supporting children, youth and families through a wide range of programs and services.

Description

Since July 2002, Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) has functioned as the City's youth and human services headquarters, combining the services once provided by Boston Community Centers, the Boston 2:00-6:00 After School Initiative, the Mayor's Office of Community Partnerships, and the Recreation Division of the City's Parks & Recreation Department under one roof. BCYF's mission is "to enhance the quality of life for Boston residents by supporting children, youth and families through a wide range of comprehensive programs and services." BCYF's Central Office is at 1483 Tremont Street in Mission Hill. The organization's 46 facilities (including 21 pools and one beach) are located in neighborhoods across the city and serve some 90,000 residents each year with childcare, youth empowerment, adult education, senior citizen, and sports, recreation and enrichment programs. Each community center offers programming tailored to meet the needs and interests of their members.
