Since its founding, Goodwill has been offering programming that responds to the academic, social, and recreational needs and interests of youth living in underserved communities and the Youth Initiative continues the longstanding commitment to young people in the most comprehensive way possible.
Goodwill’s Youth Initiative is a year-round program designed to raise the aspirations and enhance the skills of young people living in underserved Boston communities, with a special focus on Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. The Youth Initiative is offered without charge and common themes across all components of the program are active service learning, leadership and self-esteem development, collaboration with community organizations, youth engagement in program planning, and preparation for adult life. This innovative program applies Goodwill’s mission of helping individuals overcome barriers and achieve self-sufficiency to the youngest individuals in the community.
Our 2017 team is composed of selfless individuals committed to supporting the academic, personal and professional development of the more than 125 children from underserved communities in Boston who participate in our Youth Initiativeprogramming.
Each mile run and dollar raised goes to support this great program. Thank you for helping Goodwill continue its legacy of assisting youth with limited opportunities realize their full potential.
