BENEFITING: COLLEGE BOUND DORCHESTER

EVENT DATE: Aug 24, 2017

THE STORY:

For many, the summer is a time for fun and enjoyment. For the high-risk and gang-involved students we serve, that fun is often overshadowed by fear when rivalries and “beefs” rapidly get out of control – with more violence and shootings in their communities during the summer. 


Through our new Boston Uncornered initiative, we are moving hundreds of gang-involved youth (we call Core Influencers) from the “corners” into and through college over the next few years. At no time is this work more important than during these turbulent summer months. 


Through our CORNER TO COLLEGE Summer Campaign, we provide a safe refuge with community-based Teachers and College Readiness Advisors providing individualized academic and social-emotional support to over 80 of the highest-risk Core Influencers from crime “hotspots”. With their support, these Core Influencers will move away from the chaos of the corners and 25 will enroll in college in September – joining the 25 Core Influencers who matriculated in January. 


The CORNER TO COLLEGE Summer Campaign culminates with our 2017 Matriculation Celebration on August, 24th 2017. Please join us in this work. 


With your support, we can ensure that more Core Influencers are ‘uncornered’, striving for a better life for themselves, their families and their neighborhood.
