OUR MISSION, HISTORY, AND VALUES
Our mission is to unlock opportunities and change the odds for youth of color in Boston. Our goal is to help them succeed by increasing available resources that lower systemic barriers to their achievement and wellbeing. This is vital and unique work for youth of color who are subject to the pervasive trauma of systemic racism. The heartbeat of Trinity Boston Connects is in the nourishing connection between youth of color and adults who champion their success.
Formerly known as the Trinity Boston Foundation, Trinity Boston Connects was born out of the strong social justice work of Trinity Church. Our longest-standing programs, the Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC) and Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) joined to become a 501(c)(3) in 2007, with our running program Sole Train added to the portfolio in 2009. In 2013, we added an embedded program at the McCormack Middle School in Dorchester. We currently provide direct service to 600 youth and families and impact thousands through professional training services offered by the Counseling Center in schools and organizations across Boston. Our programs honor and respect individuals of all faith traditions, including those with no faith tradition.
