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 1-2-1 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 gives young refugee and immigrant youth 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.
