Ways to help

Future Protectors Initiative Mentors

ABCD’s Youth Services Department is looking for FPI Mentors to provide mentorship for program participants residing in high-crime, high-poverty neighborhoods along Boston’s Blue Hill Avenue corridor over a 6 month period. This program aims to introduce Boston's youth to career opportunities in the fields of law enforcement, emergency medical services, firefighting, and government service. This program is a wonderful way for volunteers to give back by mentoring FPI students and sharing tips and tricks to succeeding in college and beyond.
