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.
