*COVID-19 Rescheduling Update*
The Bostonians for Youth gala has been rescheduled for October 14, 2020 in alignment with COVID-19 social distancing protocol. Please see our full announcement here: https://buff.ly/3d2rNuD
The 13th annual Bostonians for Youth gala will galvanize the Trinity Boston Connects (TBC) community as we unite in our aspirations to ensure all young people in Boston, especially youth of color, are supported as they realize their enormous potential and promise. They are the future of this city. Our theme, Building a More Equitable Boston, is a call-to-action to provide Boston youth with the resources and opportunities they need to flourish, and to lower the barriers of systemic racism and poverty that stand in their way.
Please join us this year as we present the Leader of Change Award to Louise Burnham Packard for her extraordinary leadership, founding Trinity Boston Connects (formerly Trinity Boston Foundation) over 12 years ago and guiding the organization until her retirement last year. Under her direction, TBC has lived out its commitment to racial equity not only externally through its programs, but internally within its organization as well. The ripple effect of her impact will be amplified under the new leadership of Charmane Higgins, our new executive director, and felt in communities in Boston and beyond for generations to come.
Join us for an evening of community, connection, and fun!
