Preparing Boston Students for College, Career and Life

In October 2020, the Boston Opportunity Agenda launched its newest campaign: Generation Success!

In these uncertain times, we know how important it is for our students to craft a plan for college, career and life after high school. We also know from research that fewer than half of Boston Public School graduates are ready to do so.

Generation Success wants each and every student in Boston to graduate high school fully prepared to further their education and achieve success in life as they define it. That’s why we’re working with Boston-area schools, out-of-school programs, parents, nonprofits and industry groups across the city to prepare students and help them discover and explore the universe of opportunities throughout Boston and our region.

The Class of Challenges are officially going on now!

Learn more about this year’s Challenge and how Generation Success works with Boston Public Schools (BPS), counselors, teachers and parents/caregivers to ensure all 9th and 10th graders have the tools to set their goals and ultimately complete their My Career & Academic Plan (MyCAP) success plans.
