Dear Friend,


Cheers to the New Year! As we start off 2023, we want to extend a sincere THANK YOU to all of you who took healing action with us in 2022. Your support made it possible for Trinity Boston Connects (TBC) to continue to show up for our city’s youth of color and the adults who support them. Click on the video above to see for yourself!


Because you showed up, healing happened. This past year we supported healing for:

  • 350+ middle and high school youth through our Youth Development and Leadership Pathway (TEEP and Sole Train
  • Another 350+ middle schoolers and 60+ youth workers through our Clinical Care Pathway (Trinity@McCormack and TBCC)  
  • 90+ organizational leaders (intensive cohort courses) and 220+ organizational partners (workshop training) in racial equity through our Organizational Change Pathway (OEP); impacting another 15,000+ youth 


Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) continued to build significantly (avg. 20%) for the 700+ young people TBC served in 2022, and this was reflected in the students’ classroom grades. Healing through the building of SEL and leadership skills has been even more essential than ever to navigate the major disruptions and unusual circumstances experienced by schools, students, and families throughout the past three years.

For a view into what this healing action has looked like through the voices of our staff and extended community, check out TBC’s new podcast, Community Conversations. The special presentation series aired during the last weeks of the year as reflections about TBC’s programs and activities. Please tune in for any you may have missed.

For those who may not have had a chance to support TBC in 2022, we could use your help in extending the impact of 2022 giving by considering a gift to start the 2023 new year off strong. A gift today would answer Courtney’s call and help Nate, Asha, and Sophia realize the potential of their programs. Your donation would support the interconnected impact of all of our programs, leading toward an equitable Boston where youth of color thrive as leaders.

Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2023!
