The mission of the Trinity Boston Connects (formerly known as Trinity Boston Foundation) is to unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of color in Boston. Our goal is to help them succeed by increasing available resources that lower systemic barriers to their achievement and wellbeing. This is vital and unique work for youth of color who are subject to the pervasive trauma of systemic racism.
