Please extend your generosity this holiday season to support the great work done by Maura Ramsey and her staff at the South Street Youth Center in Jamaica Plain.
Please join me in making up the $2,000 gap they need to continue to provide life transforming services to neighborhood youth in Jamaica Plain.
How do your donations impact their teens?
“The center is my childhood, I made new friends, started to care about dancing and basketball. This is where it all started for me, it is my first job opportunity and where I learned how to work with kids.” –Danny, Age 13
“The Center should be open and stay open because it’s a chance for everyone to come to escape reality, to chill, to get help with homework and the staff are good to help you with life lessons and help you to put your energy to productive use.” –Rafael, Age 17
“The Center is a big part of my life. I grew up here. I’m learning the first steps towards being a man. Its helped me with my grades and I was an honor roll student all year last year because of it. I want to say thank you to the center.” –Ismael, Age 13
“The center is all about good intentions. It helps kids with homework, They push you to work and have good grades at the same time” –Jamilex, Age 15
