PBHA's 1-2-1 Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment

Purpose Statement

BRYE 1-2-1 is a big sibling program for children who, already have a working knowledge of English, and would benefit from a one-on-one mentoring relationship. Through this program, we seek to help them experience parts of American culture they might otherwise miss, give them role models to look up to, and make friendships that endure. Volunteers meet with their little siblings once a week on Saturdays, sometimes spending time one-on-one and other times taking part in organized "optional activities" or group field trips (for example, to the Boston Children's Museum, the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey's Circus, ice skating lessons, etc.)
