Started in 2013 by the Boston Private Industry Council, the Summer Fund, and Hale Reservation, and generously supported by Bank of America, the Teen Leadership Institute provides students with tools and training to help them achieve success in a summer camp counselor job, and beyond. In 2015, 245 students from 30 Boston public high schools participated in a full-day of training at Hale Reservation during April vacation. Of those students, 179 were ultimately placed in summer jobs during the summer of 2015.

Our Impact

Cultural Day has had a significant impact on MetroLacrosse’s ability to implement quality summer programming. This summer, our Coaches-In-Training program implemented lacrosse clinics for 32 community organizations, 23 of which were secured through the Summer Fund. Cultural Day gives us the opportunity to efficiently and cost-effectively secure partnerships with past partners as well as new organizations we haven’t worked with before.

Random Quote

The Homeless Campership Fund made a significant impact in several children’s lives this summer. The experience of traveling to an environment so different from the sidewalks and alleys they see every day brought energy and enthusiasm back to their eyes. The freedom and independence of the summer camp environment is especially valuable to children that have experienced the powerlessness that can come with being homeless.
