Equip A Zone for New Boston Youth
This Giving Tuesday, we’re raising money to support our Zone members who are new to Boston.
Giving Tuesday is an international movement that has become known as “the Global Day of Giving.” Giving Tuesday falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving; it helps amplify fundraising efforts during the holiday season for non-profit organizations all over the world.
Scholar Athletes partners with public high schools to help close the opportunity gap for thousands of young people in grades 9-12 across Massachusetts. Scholar Athletes’ programs leverage the power of athletics and wellness to cultivate the discipline, confidence and social-emotional skills needed to support success in school, as well as success in life. We serve over 5,000 youth across Massachusetts through our three core program areas of Academic Coaching & Mentoring, Health & Wellness, and College & Career Readiness.
At Boston International Newcomers Academy (BINcA), 100% of our Zone members start out with a first language other than English, and most have just recently arrived in the United States. With all the challenges of adjusting to life in a new country, BINcA Zone members turn to sports as a unifying force within their community. The Zone – a dedicated, in-school learning space – combines athletic and academic programming to help BINcA Zone members grow skills that build healthy habits – and result in academic success.
Open to All
With an open-door policy, the Zone is a safe and nurturing place to receive academic coaching and mentorship. Inside, our trained program staff build meaningful relationships that help young people gain the benefits of teamwork, perseverance, goal-setting and language acquisition.
