Invest in Building HYCC for the Future

For the past 45 years of being incorporated, Hawthorne Youth and Community Center (HYCC), has given so much to the Highland Park neighborhood of Roxbury.

We have had a big year! We have a new digital makers space and computer lab. We dedicated our garden space to Sam Sadd, our longtime director. We named the Tot Lot at Marcella Park also after Sam Sadd. We hired 28 youth through our after-school and summer youth employment program called 'Grow it Cook it Share it. We received a challenge grant from the Zakim Foundation, a grant through Children's Hospital and The City of Boston to increase STEAM programming and hire a Programs Director. We are now in the process of re-branding and working to re-launch our after-school program 'Say it Loud'.

Please join us in supporting a good cause. We need your help.

We are raising money for HYCC, and your contribution will continue to make a huge impact, whether you donate $5, $90 or $500. Every little bit helps with our goal to raise $20,000 in 8 weeks to build our programs and infrastructure.

Thank you for your support.
