Project D.E.E.P. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational program, which operates through collaborations with Boston Centers for Youth & Families and Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and charitable institutions like the Boston Foundation. The mission of the program is to foster the educational, athletic and social growth and development of middle school children of all races, creeds and ethnic backgrounds throughout the Dorchester community.

Project D.E.E.P. has been very lucky to receive the support of its community. From the area's elected officials to the local parents who wait in line for hours to sign up their children, all of Dorchester has supported the organization since day one. The staff has worked hard to develop a large and strong volunteer network, one that grows each year and makes programs like the tutorial component possible.

The people at Project D.E.E.P. truly care about the children. The organization's assets do not involve the awards it has received, but the dreams it watches over. Children everywhere have dreams, and Project D.E.E.P.'s main concern is that those dreams do not go to waste. That is why every child who takes part in Dorchester's ground-breaking educational outlet is treated as the most important person involved in the program.

How to get involved/application guidelines and procedures: 

Sponsor a Student Program: Each year, middle school students from all over Boston struggle with their school work, the pressures of standardized testing, and the fear of getting into a good school. On top of these challenges, kids are also balancing friends, family and after school sports and activities. Thankfully, Project D.E.E.P. has been a shining resource in helping Dorchester students manage these responsibilities so that our students come out on top.
