About MissionSAFE

Our mission is to work with Boston's highly at-risk youth and their families to gain the skills and confidence to thrive, not just survive, and to improve their community and their world.



MissionSAFE provides year round programming to youth ages 14-24 through our Youth Leadership Service Corps, Summer of Leadership and Service, and Futures programs. Each program consists of age appropriate activities in the areas of leadership development, education, employment preparation, horizon broadening, and life skills/civic engagement that have been developed to help participants build on their individual assets and resilience and increase their confidence. As a result of these programs our youth are more prepared to succeed academically, socially and professionally.



MissionSAFE is fortunate to receive ongoing support from many generous corporations, colleges and universities, and individual volunteers. Some partnerships allow us expand our program offerings, others provide youth with a glimpse of an office setting through job shadowing programs, or hosting youth for leadership development opportunities.  Many volunteers help our youth to learn a new hobby or skill. Some organizations may wish to come by for a clean up day. Our work is greatly enhanced by the efforts of the various entities who interact with our youth.
