By connecting Bostonians across racial, gender and class lines, our professionally-facilitated Community Dialogues bring neighbors, colleagues and communities together to improve our city.
Physically and emotionally strong girls are ultimately successful women. Participants in our teen health literacy programs are more knowledgeable about themselves, their bodies, their relationships and their future.
Our intensive Leadership InItiative (InIt) builds teens’ leadership skills and helps them improve their schools and neighborhoods.
Women engaged in our health literacy programs don’t just learn what it takes to be healthy – they are more likely to take action to improve their lives.
Teens and police officers don’t always trust each other before they’re involved in our Youth/Police Dialogues. But afterward, they understand each other better, and work together to improve community safety.
Why do thousands of Bostonians join our annual Stand Against Racism?
