Dear Brookline Teens & Families,
Happy October! The staff at BTC have been working hard to develop a plan to reopen safely. We are excited to share that we have developed a two-tier reopening plan to engage Brookline’s teens both virtually and in person. Our plan is guided by teen voices, CDC health and safety guidelines and our commitment to caring for Brookline’s teens. Our Fall/Winter programming will be available to all active BTC members. Not a member? We can sign you up HERE.
Virtual programming begins 10/25 and sign-ups are available below. In-person programming is set to begin on Thursday, 10/29. We will run in person programming for three days a week (Thursday-Saturday) for five weeks. Stay tuned for registration details along with our healthy and safety protocol.
Virtual Programming for Teens
Led by Teens for Teens. From one on one tutoring sessions to coding to yoga to music creation there is something for everyone! All virtual programming will be conducted via Zoom and Google Meet, sign up below!
Brookline Tutor Mentor Program (BTMP):
Audience: Middle School Teens
The Brookline Tutor Mentor Program is a free tutoring program for middle schoolers with the goal of connecting high-schoolers and middle schoolers both through academics and a supportive mentor system. Mentors will provide test prep and homework help and develop rapport and camaraderie through games and activities. BTMP is also introducing the 9th Grade Transition Program, which assists ninth graders in real time by teaching them skills such as time management, test prep, organization, and more. The goal of this program is to make the transition from middle school to high school easier for BPS students.
BTC Arts Academy:
Audience: All Teens
Building off of BTC’s Summer Space Camp, BTC is offering courses taught by teens on Programming with Python, Figure Drawing, Baking, Creative Writing and Yoga. Courses meet once per week.
Virtual Music Programming
Audience: High School Teens
High School music teens are invited to experience the music offerings virtually to continue to hone their music abilities, connect with like-minded musicians, create and share original music. BTC will host original programming to engage teens through monthly Masterclasses with experienced music professionals, “BrainWave” (virtual variety show) and” Mixtape Project” (collaboration amongst individual artists to create music together).
