"

BAGLY has advocated for programs, policies and services, built the community, social, and economic capital of youth and contributed to the political power of the LGBTQ movement for over 30 years!!

Young LGBTQ movement leaders have played a vital role in identifying issues, working toward solutions and reducing health, education, employment and housing disparities among LGBTQ communities.  The Queer Activist College (QuAC), a Boston Based BAGLY program, engages young LGBTQ people from the most marginalized communities in organizing for policy and systems change, and connects young people with meaningful opportunities to create and grow youth-led campaigns and develop a vision for a strong, youth-led social justice community.  BAGLY also supports QuAC graduates in applying their skills to higher education, meaningful employment, and advanced leadership opportunities in social justice organizing and other movement work."

How to get involved/application guidelines and procedures: 

Inspired by the work that LGBTQ youth are doing in our communities?  We are too!  There are many ways to get involved, from volunteering, attending events, to planning your own fundraiser!  BAGLY's commitment to you is to accept your generosity with transparency and results.  To learn more about what your support accomplishes, please e-mail our Director of Development, Kurtlan Massarsky, or call him directly at 617.227.4313 x 130.

The Boston Community Partnerships for Children exists to ensure access to a high quality early educational experience, regardless of setting, for all of Boston's children and their families.

The Boston Community Partnerships for Children works to ensure that parents and families of children ages 0-8 have access to quality child care. Community Partnerships brings together all sectors (center based, family child care, head start and public schools) of the early childhood community in Boston to make child care better and more affordable.

Currently, the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) funds the work of the Community Partnerships program through annual grants. Boston uses its annual grant to improve the quality of care offered by participating providers. All providers are welcome to join their neighborhood cluster and participate.
