  • BIFF (Building Inspiration to Fight Failure) Project

    BIFF is an innovative after-school program that begins with 12 intensive lessons delivered over a nine-week period. Like the 12 Step Program used in drug rehabilitation, the 12 lessons presented in the BIFF core curriculum bring kids to a crossroad where they can see two paths very clearly. One path – the path they are on – leads to failure and mediocrity. The other path – the BIFF path – leads to excellence and prosperity. It is an easy choice and 80% of the students who finish BIFF choose the path of success. The lessons taught in the curriculum help students boost their skills in the following areas: Listening, Reading Speed, Study Skills, Concentration, Memory, Organization, Attention Span, Speaking, Test-Taking, Motivation, Confidence, and Multi-Model Learning. Once a student completes all 12 lessons in the BIFF core curriculum, he/she is initiated into the BIFF alumni club and is eligible to attend monthly follow-up meetings and participate in the incentives program designed to reward high academic achievement.

  • Girls Connection

    The Girls Connection Program is a collaboration between the Boston Learning Center and Madison Park Community Center in Roxbury.

The overall goal of the Girls Connection Program is to create a high quality, year-round program for teenage girls which offers comprehensive services and a variety of supports to enable participants to realize success in school and in life. Activities include tutoring/homework help, dance, double dutch, spoken word poetry, step, and entrepreneurship.

  • S.A.L.S.A.

    S.A.L.S.A. (Students Advocating Life without Substance Abuse) is a program in which high school students act as positive role models for younger students in the community by promoting healthy drug-free lifestyles. The members visit schools and other communities where youth gather across the Boston area and put on informative presentations about the dangers of drugs and alcohol while reassuring the younger crowd that you can still be cool if you say “No.” The presentations foster an open forum for discourse about all issues younger youth might have for the high school leaders. S.A.L.S.A. has a paid summer term as well as a school year term. The program begins with an intensive training period where youth develop original skits and prepare their future presentations. During this time, S.A.L.S.A. leaders develop leadership and presentation skills while looking forward to serving their community. Additionally, S.A.L.S.A. leaders learn entrepreneurial skills by essentially running the program with adult supervision.
