MAY 2021
Spring is in full bloom and Boston is opening again with Massachusetts recently ranked among the safest states in the country because of our high vaccination rates (woo-hoo!). Trinity Boston Connects (TBC) is energized and mobilized as our healing work continues virtually, with limited in-person engagement until a full and safe return is possible. Continue below for program and event updates at a glance and/or see full program updates here.
This month TEEP welcomed its 4th Director, Taneyri DeJesus, just in time for TEEP’s 22nd Summer! Taneyri brings over 10 years of youth development and curriculum building experience to TEEP. We’re excited to have her on board as TEEP prepares for a hybrid summer focused on wellness and community building, with weekly trips and adventures. One of their key activities will include the design of a service and activism project in honor of Bolivar Soto, a TEEP alum we lost to senseless community violence in November.
Calling all runners and fundraisers: we are thrilled to announce that Team Trinity is now accepting applications for our 2021 Boston Marathon team! On October 11th, the 125th Boston Marathon is slated to return as an in-person race with a virtual option. Please join us and race for racial equity healing at the world's oldest annual marathon. Don't miss out -- slots are limited so be sure to submit your application today.
Trinity@McCormack continues to provide critical clinical and training support for the McCormack School students and staff as they navigate COVID and a school merger with Boston Community Leadership Academy (BCLA). Trinity ran the McCormack's professional development trainings this school year with a focus on racial equity, creating school values and practices that actively uproot White Supremacy Culture. As a result, McCormack teachers rated highest on racial equity in the district in a BPS professional learning survey. BCLA commissioned Trinity@McCormack to run 6 trainings this year on TBC's 3 Essential Community Practices, based on the success of Trinity's Summer Learning Institute in 2020. Survey results from BCLA's trainings can be viewed here.
Thank you for your enduring commitment to TBC. Please consider a gift to support our programs and carry our healing mission forward.
