This summer, I will be a Senior Counselor at the Franklin I-O Summer Camp in Dorchester, Massachusets. FIO is part of the Summer Urban Program that runs through the Phillips Brooks House Association, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to extending resources to those who are in need of it.

Franklin I-O Summer Program serves 80 children and their families from the Franklin Field and Franklin Hill housing developments in Dorchester. Franklin I-O offers seven weeks of summer programming to young people ages six to 13, engaging campers in an academic curriculum that builds self-esteem and supports young people to explore their identity, values, and physical world.

Since its creation, Franklin I-O has expanded its mission to address the problem of turf-based violence between the Franklin Field and Franklin Hill by creating an environment conducive to friendship, understanding, and conflict resolution for Franklin youth. Throughout the years and the changes the area has experienced, including the redevelopment of the Franklin Hill Housing development, Franklin I-O has continued to promote a stable, non-violent, empowered community.
