WELCOME TO JUNETEENTH 2021

Dear Friends, Families, Youth, and Community Partners:

Here are some great events happening around the City of Boston for Juneteenth 2021. We encourage you to bring your students, friends, and family as we encourage more of us to celebrate and honor Black Freedom, Joy, Courage, Excellence, and the History of Struggle and Perseverance in the United States of America,

Special Thanks to Mentors, Volunteers, and Students of the Greatest MINDS. And, also our partners - Boston After School & Beyond, Boston Children's Hospital, the Charles Hayden Foundation, and Boston Center for Youth and Families for helping us provide opportunities for our young people in Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan this summer.

Sincerely,

Chip Greenidge

Director, Greatest MINDS
