Leadership For Social Justice
City School's Next Five Years
Learn about our plan to lead The City School into the future.
With this plan we are building on what is good at The City School
and working with focus and clarity to make it great.
The City School is a vibrant
and unique youth organization in Boston that brings together teenagers
Boston's diverse neighborhoods and outlying communities in programs
that combine creative education and critical thinking
about social justice issues with hands-on leadership, learning,
reflection and action.
goal is simple yet powerful: to transform lives and communities
by helping young people embrace difference, tackle issues head-on,
reflect, act and give back. Our model of youth work demonstrates
how we educates ourselves and others to make meaningful change in
the world around us. And it works.
Each year nearly 800 young
people come from the city and outlying communities for leadership
development and social justice education in our summer,
weekend and afterschool programs. Teens
build relationships across race, class, gender and geography; create
caring, learning communities committed to making a meaningful difference;
and use what they learn to carry out action for social change in
their neighborhoods and communities.
Our Programs In Brief...
Leadership Program is where teens
learn that individually and collectively, they are powerful agents
of social change. Sixty diverse teens unite to bridge social barriers
and empower themselves with hands-on leadership training, classroom
learning, internships at local nonprofits, and social action projects
they implement throughout the city.
