Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston Community Engagement Coordinator - SCI AmeriCorps Member
The SCI AmeriCorps program supports youth success by connecting young people with the relationships, experiences, and resources they need to succeed. Members implement volunteer outreach and capacity building activities that increase volunteer participation, and provide leadership training and community service opportunities for youth.
