Chinatown Adventure (CHAD) seeks to enrich and improve the quality of life for low-income youth in Boston’s Chinatown through a commitment to the academic, social, and personal development of its campers. CHAD fights summer learning loss by reinforcing and strengthening campers’ academic skills, and promotes personal growth among its campers through activities that develop fundamental social skills, healthy identities, cross-cultural awareness, and social consciousness.
CHAD partners with PBHA’s term-time Chinatown programs, including Chinatown Afterschool and Chinatown Big Sibling, to offer youth continuous academic, social, and personal support throughout the school year. CHAD operates in the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association in Boston’s Chinatown. The program is open to young people living in Chinatown, particularly in the Mass Pike Towers, Castle Square, Oak Terrace, Metropolitan, and Tai Tung Village housing developments.
