College Bound Dorchester

Who We Are


To equip students with the skills, attitude and experience to graduate from college.

An intervention model designed to identify, engage and serve the most influential and disconnected young people in the community, whom we call “Core Influencers”.

Many of these young people are gang-involved and drive the violence in the streets. Once the Core Influencers are on the path to success, they can serve as a constructive force within the community to drive positive change. In this way, we use a super-user strategy to break the dysfunctional cycles and create a college-bound culture in the neighborhoods we serve.


What We Do

Our approach is two-fold, focusing on both prevention and intervention to establish a continuum of services for the community. Using this model, we are able to ensure students remain on track and help those who have disconnected get back on the path to college graduation.
