Our innovative and vibrant youth development programming has been offered in-person for nearly one year, despite the health and safety changes required to operate during the pandemic. To ensure safety and physical distancing, we have had to reduce our enrollments – but almost 900 young people have participated in programming that fosters academic success, exploration and mastery of the arts, career readiness, and adopting healthy lifestyles.
During the school year, we operated one of Boston’s only learning hub programs designed for teens. As schools and institutions continue re-opening, we look forward to the time when our programming will return to pre-pandemic levels. We are not quite there yet, but as vaccine distribution continues and our communities become more and more safe, we are offering on-site experiences to as many young people as possible.
