BCYF's Girls Nights start July 15

June 29, 2015

Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) is now enrolling Boston girls for Girls Nights, a series of free girls-only events.

All activities are designed to bring girls together in a safe, non-competitive environment where they can be themselves, meet other girls their age and engage with role models.

Girls Nights also connect girls with necessary resources and opportunities while they enjoy a positive and fun experience with their peers. Last summer over 850 girls participated in BCYF’s Girls Nights.

“Girls Nights create opportunities for young Boston girls,” said Mayor Walsh. “Through this summer programming, we’re striving to build up our local community and provide our youth with unforgettable experiences.”
