PBHA’s Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment (BRYE) Teen pairs recently immigrated teenagers (11-16) in Dorchester with college-age mentors. The program supports students as they build English skills and learn to navigate new cultural environments and equips teens with the tools they need to succeed both in and out of the classroom. BRYE Teen’s mission combines educational and cultural activities with a social justice mindset in order to develop the teens understanding of their own identities in Dorchester.

BRYE Teen meets each Saturday from 1:00 – 3:00 PM in Dorchester.
