Friends of the Children-Boston
Friends of the Children-Boston (Friends-Boston) creates generational change by engaging children from high risk communities in twelve years of transformative mentoring relationships.
Friends Boston selects students from Boston's highest risk communities in first grade and commits to them for 12 years, providing 4-6 hours of weekly support through high school graduation. Our organization is committed to developing and fostering strong character development and high academic achievement in children from undeserved communities to avoid cycles of poverty, abuse and violence to become successful members of society. We call the children we serve Achievers to demonstrate our belief in their unlimited potential.
