On October 29, 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.
Generation Success is thrilled to announce our three grant recipients for the 2021 Generation Success grant challenge! At the end of 2020, we offered small and medium-sized businesses, as well as nonprofits, an opportunity to apply for a $10,000 grant to help young people achieve their goals in life. Please join us in celebrating our grant recipients and learn more about their work to expose Boston’s high school students to local industries and gain meaningful learning and skills that they can leverage after high school.
Check out our Generation Success brightspot toolkit – Harnessing Boston’s Collective Energy to Prepare Students for College, Career and Life. See how nonprofits, industry groups and educators, like Autodesk, Boston Society for Architecture, Rapid7, Elkus Manfredi Architects, Harvard Medical School – and more – are already empowering and inspiring students through exciting and creative professional opportunities.
