After School & Summer Programs

Setting Children Up for Success

Every child deserves a promising future. Our youth-centered programs help give them the skills they need to flourish.

Variety of Programs

Catholic Charities Boston is dedicated to helping school-aged children meet their full potential by offering programs that support their health, wellness, productivity, leadership development, and education.

Helping Address Challenges

Young people face gang violence, drugs, and many other complex issues. We help youth address these concerns with an informed, rational perspective–and encourage them to stay involved in their community.

Providing Valuable Life Skills

Our mentoring and tutoring programs help create self-esteem, support school attachment, and promote the ability to make positive life choices, while teaching youth to interact appropriately with peers and adults.

Summer Programs

Sunset Point Camp

Sunset Point Camp provides an overnight camp experience to children ages 6-14 from Greater Boston and the South Shore areas. Campers travel to Hull, MA each summer to learn new talents, participate in water-based activities from swimming to boating, teaming building through sports, creativity through arts and crafts, receive academic summer support, enjoy ice cream socials and treasure night, along with a host of other activities centered around having fun.

The Catholic Charities Teen Center serves as a safe haven for close to 300 adolescents living in Dorchester’s most troubled areas during after school hours and throughout the summer months. The staff, programs, and activities aim to increase teens’ self-esteem while providing the tools needed for academic and personal growth, as well as their success in the community.

Through the center, adolescents of the mid-Dorchester corridor are provided with work opportunities, access to various support services, and a safe place for recreation. Work and activities aim to provide the skills necessary for academic success. Our dedicated staffed vans provide after-school pick-up and safe delivery of youths to their homes in the evenings.
