PBHA’s Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment (BRYE) 1-2-1 is a big sibling program for recent immigrant and refugee youth living in Dorchester. Unlike PBHA’s other BRYE programs, which often support students in building basic English skills, BRYE 1-2- works with children who already have a working knowledge of English and would benefit from a one-on-one mentoring relationship.

BRYE 1-2-1 provides a space for young refugee and immigrant youth to experience parts of American culture they might otherwise miss, give them role models to look up to, and form lasting friendships. Pairs of big and little siblings meet each Saturday, sometimes spending time one-on-one and other times taking part in organized group field trips throughout Greater Boston.
