Trinity Boston Connects (TBC) is looking for an experienced professional to join this dynamic and fast-growing community change organization. With a mission to unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of Boston, TBC delivers programs that serve youth and families and build dense networks of relationships and community support for youth city-wide.
TBC was born out of the social justice mission of Trinity Church in the City of Boston. We believe that Boston’s future cannot be changed without programmatic interventions that integrate three Community Practices deemed essential for effective youth programming and organizational development: Racial Equity, Restorative Justice, and Trauma Inclusion. The integration of these practices forms the basis of our programming, including our convening, training, and consulting work with other youth serving organizations throughout the City of Boston.
Our youth development programs create safe and supportive communities that inspire youth to develop the sociol emotional learning (SEL) skills necessary for academic, life and career success. These programs include: Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, Trinity@McCormack, and Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) providing direct services to nearly 1000 youth and families.
To truly change the odds, the communities in which our youth live, learn, and develop must also change. It is not enough to help young people navigate oppressive environments. We strive to help change the schools, institutions, and organizations within which our programs operate so that they can be more supportive and nurturing. As a learning organization, we develop and share best practices with other youth-serving organizations through our Organizational Equity Practice (OEP) and Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC). These two programs provide clinical services, convenings, trainings, coaching, and consulting offerings to Boston youth-serving organizations.
Trinity Boston Connects is a subsidiary of Trinity Church in the City of Boston and all employees are entitled to receive all church benefits.
