The curriculum develops girls’ leadership skills, helping them to identify and discuss issues relevant to their lives, and ultimately take action in their communities by designing and implementing community service projects. This program was launched in 1997. There are two locations for Leader Within – the Salesian Boys & Girls Club in East Boston and the Boys & Girls Club of Blue Hill in Dorchester.
