Being young – that is, learning who you are and who you want to be – is difficult. That challenge is magnified for young people struggling to come into their own amidst violence, poverty, neglect, gang influence, or run-ins with the law.

Each year, YOU Boston offers hundreds of Boston youth a crucial lifeline – to job training, to mentorship, to earned income, to a safe space, to peer support. These are early-life opportunities to make a change and learn how to develop into an adult with a promising career outlook and a plan for the future.
