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.

Summer Fund Fact

As part of the Summer Fund, in 2017 the Homeless Campership Fund supported 25 camp and shelter partners enabling families in homeless shelters and those facing housing insecurities free access for over 1300 summer camp slots for this at-risk youth population.

Our Impact

To say that the HCF program has been central in assisting families in need who would otherwise not have had opportunities in the summer is an understatement. Without this program, many children would simply sit in their rooms at the shelters.
