Based on a promise to do more for the kids of Brookline we started an amazing journey. With nothing but a dream, we were able to create a community safe space filled with opportunities for youth of all backgrounds. Since day one, we have been funded solely through self-conducted fundraisers and the support of generous donors.
In less than two years, we were able to purchase our space at 520 Brookline Blvd. and transform it into a community space that serves many needs within the community. Since 2017 we’ve grown our programming from social programming and tutoring to include specialized workshops in acting, podcasting, sustainability and college readiness/financial aid and other academic programming. We have also developed a thriving art program, computer lab, STEM program, and offer cooking and other life skills classes. In addition, a partnership with 412 Food Rescue allows us to provide after-school snacks and home-cooked dinners to our students every day. We are also able to use this connection to support our local food bank, meals on wheels and free weekly community meal.
Our ability to provide so much is dependent on the generosity of individuals, small businesses and corporations. Without monetary support we would not be able to provide all of our services free of charge to the youth we serve. This key feature of our programming insures that everyone, regardless of their circumstances, has the same opportunities.
This is where you come in. Will you help to support a community organization dedicated to improving the lives of youth ages 10-18? Can you contribute to improving the lives of more than 100 students each week?
$250 – Will provide 10 youth with backpacks and school supplies
$100 – Will supply snacks to all students for one week
$60 – Will sponsor 5 kids to go on a hike that could not afford to go otherwise
$20 – Will provide art supplies for one month
Give what you can; no donation is too small because every dollar you give goes directly toward our programming.
