Description

Program Description

The B-SAFE Program (The Bishop's Summer Academic & Enrichment Program) is a six-week, full-day academic and enrichment program serving young people from first grade through high school. The mission of St. Stephen's Youth Programs is to promote equity in education, employment and opportunities by building long-term relationships with young people, families, and communities. 


The goal of B-SAFE is to build a circle of care around each young person and to create a community where all people feel safe, feel big, and feel connected. This summer we will be running eleven programs in six Boston-area neighborhoods. Each site will include academic programs in Humanities, STEM, Creative Arts, and Health & Wellness along with many field trips. A healthy breakfast and lunch will be served each day, along with snack. While based in Episcopal churches and schools, the B-SAFE Program has no required religious component for staff or youth.


For middle school youth, we run a Youth Leadership Corps that includes all of the above activities, along with leadership trainings, community service opportunities, and meeting with local political officials.


For high school youth, we run a CIT (Counselor-in-Training) program that is a paid summer job.
