For over twenty-five years, BOSTnet has worked to strengthen the early care, after school and OST field through innovative research, leadership and program design, training, coaching, and quality supports. We commemorated our 25th anniversary at a Summer 2012 event at Girls Incorporated of Lynn. Read coverage of the event in the Lynn Item, here.

Summer Learning Collaborative: BOSTnet’s unique Summer Learning Collaborative is innovative in the field of literacy support for school-age children. In a dynamic partnership with the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, United Way of Central Mass, Family Services of Central Mass, and other partners, BOSTnet is delivering a sustainable, high-impact strategy to halt summer learning loss and spark a lifelong love of reading in children across low-income communities throughout the Commonwealth.
