BBYO parents and friends,

Our site is Dorchester Bay Youth Force, a non-profit organization focused on providing teen jobs and promoting teen wellness in Boston.

Everyday we take a bus to an office in Dorchester Boston, and meet with local teens working for the organization. After learning about community organizing and different projects that they have done to earn back a bigger budget for increase team jobs in Massachusetts.

Yesterday (Tuesday) we went door knocking (yes it is a verb now) to encourage locals to vote in a special senate elections. The people who we interacted surprised me with their friendliness and pride for their neighborhood.

Manny, a teen in Boston came with my group and helped us promote voting. He, to wear extremely patterned-filled socks! He does not qualify for a public bus to high school so he needs to pay for public transportation or walk 1.9 miles. He and other teens are lobbying to increase the budget for teen transportation.

It's awesome to be able to interact with him and other Impact teens from all over the country.

Until next time,

Youth Force Teens
