Boys and Girls Club Boston
We help young people, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. We serve approximately 15,000 children and teens from the age of 6 to 18. Our approach focuses on six core initiatives: Arts; Education; Leadership; Life Skills; Sports, Fitness and Recreation; and Technology.
Nativity Preparatory School Boston
Nativity Preparatory School is an accredited, tuition-free, Jesuit middle school serving boys of all faiths from low-income families residing in Boston’s inner city neighborhoods. We work to inspire in students a love of learning, an awareness of their own interest and ideas, a fundamental understanding of culture, and an abiding sense of responsibility to their community.
Match Education is an engine of discovery and applied innovation in education. We operate high-performing urban public charter schools and a unique graduate school of education that trains teachers for high-poverty schools. Out of this applied work, we refine, validate empirically, and eventually disseminate new ideas and practices on core questions in education reform.
Roxbury Prep is founded on the philosophy that all students are entitled to and can succeed in college preparatory programs when: 1) the curriculum is rigorous, engaging, and well-planned; 2) the school emphasizes student character, community responsibility, and exposure to life’s possibilities; and 3) a community network that supports student academic, social, and physical well-being.
Excel Academy Charter Schools is a network of tuition-free, public charter middle schools serving East Boston, Chelsea, and the surrounding communities. We envisioned a free, public school alternative where all students would be held to the highest academic and behavioral expectations, and college would become a reality.
YES Youth Enrichment Services
Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is a unique and well-established youth development organization that introduces Boston kids and teens to the great outdoors through skiing, snowboarding, biking, hiking, rock climbing, and other sports. Our Operation Snow Sports and Outdoor Adventure programs instill positive values, help kids develop a healthy lifestyle, and teach teamwork.
