What We Do

At the Boaz Organization for Youth headquarters, we:

  • Create a safe space for youth where they can study, paint, talk, read, write, de-stress, or just hang out. Make an appointment to see the space here.
  • Host English classes weekly. We welcome all levels and speakers of any language. See the schedule here.
  • Host painting classes weekly. See the schedule here.
  • Provide individual and group tutoring weekly, by appointment. Let us know your tutoring needs here.
  • Connect youth with services they need if we do not provide them here. Make an appointment for a referral here.
  • Collaborate with legal and social work teams at other organizations to provide holistic care.
  • Host special events, classes, and excursions for our youth and the general public. Check the calendar for upcoming events here.

We are currently organizing a Youth Advisory Team that will meet biweekly to help guide the organization’s activities and program development. This team will be comprised of youth who have participated in The Boaz Organization for Youth’s programs and want to be involved in planning for the organization’s future.

The Boaz Organization for Youth provides post-release services to unaccompanied immigrant children and youth to assist after they have been released to a sponsor from immigration detention. This is a service provided under the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services, through the Office of Refugee Resettlement. To learn more about post-release services, click here.

We advocate for immigrant, refugee, migrant, and children’s rights on a larger scale through our membership in the United Nations NGO Committee on Migration and Committee on Children’s Rights, as well as our membership in the New York Immigration Coalition.

The Boaz Organization for Youth is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
