College Bound Dorchester was built by, and for, the community and individuals who believe in the transformative power of education, and currently operates as Boston Uncornered. The organization’s Uncornered model scaffolds the best practices of mentorship with the proven success of high expectations and provides financial support to ensure that young adults are able to progress from a past of incarceration to a future of higher education and employability with a goal of unlocking the brilliance and power of Core Influencers as positive agents of peace to drive community change.
They focus on young adults aged 18 to 30 to support reentry and success with services for:
- HiSET preparation to complete a high school credential
- College readiness to enroll in a credentialed post-secondary pathway
- ‘On campus’ support to ensure success of a college degree
- Connection to a community-based mentor for access to additional services such as mental health, housing, and other needs
COVID-19 Update: Their physical buildings are currently closed due to the pandemic but they are providing services virtually.
