Want to make a BIG change in a SMALL way?
Think about donating to RYI! Roxbury Youth Initiative is a summer camp I have had the pleasure of working with for the last 5 years. Our camp consists of mostly black and brown kids, and as you know, these kids are underprivileged and do not have equal opportunities as others. Although they live in a low income community, they deserve to have just as many opportunities to learn and have fun as anyone else, don't they?
Roxbury Youth Initiative (RYI) strives to create a safe, exciting, scholarly, and positive learning environment for Roxbury’s children by collaborating with community members, parents, children, and a network of social service organizations to offer a seven-week, community-based, academic summer camp. RYI promotes and encourages academic and personal excellence by instilling the importance of community activism, consciousness, and education in the youth of Roxbury.
RYI works closely with PBHA’s Roxbury Youth Initiative Term program to offer youth continuous academic, social, and personal support throughout the school year.
