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

In 2017, the Summer Fund allocated $980,000 to support over 20,000 disadvantaged and at-risk youth, youth in homeless shelters, and those facing housing insecurities to take part in summer camping, access to cultural and arts activities, and job opportunities for the summer.

Our Impact

The Homeless Campership Fund greatly impacts the lives of the children and families we serve. Attending camp provides the children with an opportunity to participate in a safe, educational, and fun experience that allows them to enjoy being children, free from the worries that accompany living in a domestic shelter environment.
