So what makes BTO different? 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. At Brookline Teen Outreach, we provide trauma-informed care to teens in a way that fosters safety, healthy relationships, and empowers students to achieve their potential. At BTO, we believe in approaching each teen from an individualized, empowering, and trauma-informed perspective. We provide students with a safe space where they can be heard, practice using their voice, and develop their skills. Everyone flourishes in spaces where they feel respected, seen, and valued.
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 ensures 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?
Give what you can; no donation is too small because every dollar you give goes directly toward our programming.
Gifts in kind: Have a gaming system, pool table, or art supplies you don’t need? Do you have a special talent that teens would love to learn? Become a volunteer ! Would you be willing to volunteer to help with minor repairs? Can you connect us to someone we should know? These are all ways to help expand our community without giving money, and we are always grateful for them.
