Teen Program: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester Teen Program has a lot going on! Members of the Keystone Club have been taking part in cooking classes at Milk Street Kitchen every week, volunteering with the Challenger Sports program and have an upcoming service date with the Special Olympics in Worcester on March 10. We are also assisting teens applying for summer jobs through the Department of Youth Engagement & Employment. Many teens have also been taking part in College and Career Prep activities. A group of 11 members just returned from an overnight trip to Washington, DC to visit 5 colleges while our next sessions for the College Fellows program will be March 6 (Juniors/Seniors) and March 20 (Freshman/Sophomores).
