A little over one year ago, a roof collapsed in our Early Education facility. While thankfully no one was injured, our operations were disrupted and hundreds of children were displaced without access to vital programming. Many of these students have nowhere else to go during the day, so it was imperative that we got things up and running as quickly as possible.
Thanks to the generous contributions of our donors, we were able to repair our facility and get our early education students back into their classrooms. In order to thank those who supported this effort, College Bound will host a cocktail reception in the very classroom where the majority of the damage was done.
We are honored to have been granted two bibs for the 2016 Boston Marathon to raise much needed funds for our programs. Each donation made to TEAM COLLEGE BOUND: DORCHESTER STRONG will directly support the work we do with students through two areas- Prevention and Intervention.

The annual We Are College Bound Gala celebrates our commitment to helping the community we serve embrace education as a means to impact neighborhood change. Event proceeds support our mission to equip students with the attitudes, skills and experience to graduate from college. Join us for an evening of celebration as we hear stories of hardships and triumphs from staff and students alike. For more information, please contact Debbie LaRocque.

Matriculation Celebration 2016
Celebrate a brighter future and the accomplishments of our students who are matriculating to college. Each year, College Bound comes together to recognize those students who have taken another step toward a college degree and enrolled in college courses. Last year, 52 students proved that past mistakes do not define the future and zip codes don’t have to determine success as they they walked across the stage and turned their tassels left.
At this year’s event, students will share stories of how they went from disconnected to dedicated and disruptive to degree-bound. Don’t miss out on the chance to celebrate with College Bound students and their families as they transform their lives and their communities through their commitment to education.
