Youth Initiatives

  • The Department of Opportunity Youth (OY) regularly partners with BPS departments and community work groups, such as the BPS Re-Engagement Center, the Boston Youth Transitions Task Force, and the Boston Opportunity Youth Collaborative to support initiatives that improve outreach and engagement of students who are disconnected to school. Through these partnerships, OY seeks to connect relevant opportunities for student success in college, career, and life, while offering wraparound services that stabilize and overcome barriers for students, thereby allowing equitable opportunities for student achievement and success.
