The B-SAFE Program (The Bishop's Summer Academic & Enrichment Program) is a six-week, full-day academic and enrichment program serving young people from first grade through high school. This summer we will be running eleven programs in six Boston-area neighborhoods. Each site will include academic programs in Humanities, STEM, Creative Arts, and Health & Wellness along with many field trips. A healthy breakfast and lunch will be served each day, along with snack. While based in Episcopal churches and schools, the B-SAFE Program has no required religious component for staff or youth. For middle school youth, we run a Youth Leadership Corps that includes all of the above activities, along with leadership training, community service opportunities, and meeting with local political officials. For high school youth, we run a CIT (Counselor-in-Training) program that is a paid summer job.
