Teen Leadership Institute

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 the Spring of 2017, 150 students from 30 Boston public high schools participated in a full-day of training at Hale Reservation.

 

Summer Fund Fact

Each year, between 10,000-12,000 campers enjoy as many as 300 free field trips, on-site cultural activities, and other arts and historical experiences.

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.
