YouthConnect of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston

YouthConnect is an innovative program of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston in partnership with the Boston Police Department. Licensed clinical social workers are placed inside Boston Police stations that see the highest rates of youth arrests, providing voluntary community-based counseling, intervention and advocacy services to young people and their families who are in crisis or experiencing acute problems. YOU Boston and YouthConnect collaborate on over 20 cases per year, working in tandem to provide the combined services and resources that each young person needs to move forward.
