Additional Details

Specific copy, of up to 1000 words, translated from one language to another of the Organization's choice

We have medical paperwork (6 pages) that needs to be translated into Cape Verde Creole and Haitian Creole.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the paperwork which needs to be translated, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a staff person to answer any questions, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Over 50% of the families in our school speak a language other than English. Currently those families can only get verbal translations of important information about potential services their children can access.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

About The Org

Our Mission

Trinity Boston's mission is to unlock opportunity and change the odds for youth of color in Boston. Our programs create safe and supportive communities that inspire our youth to express their voice, develop their leadership, and achieve their goals. We work with youth impacted by systemic racism and poverty through our three direct service programs and we partner with youth-serving organizations to effect enduring change in the systems and organizations that impact youth. Our three essential community practices form the foundation of our work: trauma-informed care, restorative justice and racial equity.

What We Do

Trinity Boston works with youth impacted by systemic racism and poverty through our three direct service programs:

Trinity@McCormack supports the community of youth and staff at McCormack Middle School through individual clinical work, restorative justice practices and trauma-informed interventions.

Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) builds community through a pipeline program for 125 low-income middle and high school youth of color that includes academic enrichment, leadership development, paid work opportunities, peer mentoring, and college admissions support.

Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is a community-building and mentoring program that engages 300 youth and 115 adult mentors at 20 schools, using running to teach how to set and achieve goals.

In addition to our direct service work with youth, we partner with other organizations to effect enduring change in the systems that impact youth through our Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC) and Organizational Equity Practice (OEP). TBCC provides coaching and consultation to youth workers in our partner organizations. With a focus on racial equity, OEP provides organizations with the tools necessary to address issues that can impede their work, including inequity in staffing and hiring practices, and program sustainability.
