The Moakley Center undertakes a variety of projects to support public service work carried out by both public and nonprofit organizations in the community. Some of the work is done under contract, some on a pro bono basis. Many staff members and senior fellows serve on Boards of Directors for local nonprofit organizations in Boston as well.
Summer iWorks Program
In partnership with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Boston Regional Office and Communities for People (CFP), the Moakley Center conducted its eighth annual Summer iWorks program from July through August of 2011. To date, 300 youth aged 16-18 have successfully graduated from the program. More than 25 different organizations in Boston and surrounding areas have given youth the opportunity to gain work experience and develop positive work habits.
