The Dorchester Youth Collaborative was founded in 1981 in response to the need for programs to serve the most at risk youth of Boston – teens who live in neighborhoods with high rates of violence, unemployment, and social instability, and who are more likely to become involved in the criminal justice and social service systems without interventions and support. DYC engages high-risk young people in relationships and projects that promote their psycho-social development, as well as the health and safety of the community. DYC introduces teens to education, enrichment, health, sports, performance arts, and employment opportunities. Family can be involved in thratment of youth.
On the Job Program:
On The Job engages teens and assists them with basic needs by offering job opportunities and income. DYC has youth staff positions: tutoring, performance art instruction and public presentations, and on-going day jobs such as running errands and cleaning in and around the center.
Staff also provides job referral and support services including counseling, transportation, and work clothing.
