BPS will partner with Boston After School & Beyond for initiative
Boston, MA – Thursday, December 15, 2016 – The Boston Public Schools will share a $400,000 grant with Boston After School & Beyond, a local nonprofit organization that coordinates afterschool programs citywide. Together, they will devise a plan to help children in Boston develop vital social and emotional skills that are linked to success in school, career and life. A few of the features they will focus on are: teamwork, persistence, goal-setting, self-control and getting along with others.
“This generous contribution and ongoing partnership between Boston Public Schools and Boston After School & Beyond enables our students to directly benefit from collaborative learning activities,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “Team building is one of the many important lessons that will help our students succeed now and later in life.”
