3Point expanded its impact in 2020 by beginning a partnership with Roxbury Prep Dorchester Campus. The school is located in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. Founded in 1999, Roxbury Prep serves Boston families with an award-winning instructional model that supports students' academic and personal growth. Roxbury Prep is committed to preparing each student to succeed in college and beyond. In 2020, 3Point provided our after-school programming, enhanced by basketball and dance, for students in grades 5-8. Our program has been embraced enthusiastically by the school and it’s students.
“3Point is the most supportive program! When I first joined 3Point, I did not expect to receive so much support and comfort. 3Point is like a home away from home. Even while we are remote, I can still feel the positive vibes from everyone!” - Mickelle C., Roxbury Prep Student in 3Point
3Point was requested to provide programming at Roxbury Prep by our partners the Boston Police Department to strengthen the relationship between police and youth. Although the school does not have a basketball gym, the BPD provided free transportation for our 3Point students to the Vine Street Community Center - to show their support for our program and their commitment to the youth and the school
We are excited to continue to expand our impact in 2021 by welcoming Gardner Pilot Academy to our 3Point family! Our team is excited to bring our program to Gardner, one of several Community Hub Schools in Boston.
