PARTNERS ADVANCING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER (PACT)


​The Boston Partners Advancing Communities Together (PACT) Initiative is a multidisciplinary, comprehensive service delivery strategy to increase positive outcomes for youth who are the most at risk of being victims or perpetrators of gun violence. Partners work together to connect youth to long-term, meaningful relationships with trusted adults and to education and employment services.

The PACT Initiative is made up of five youth-serving organizations in Boston: Boston Public Health Commission, The Boston Center for Youth and Families Streetworker ProgramThe Violence Intervention Advocacy Program at Boston Medical Center, Youth Options Unlimited and YouthConnect.

The partners are committed to building productive professional relationships amongst their organizations in order to increase accountability, reduce redundancy and provide effective and coordinated services to PACT clients.

Services offered:
PACT has contracted with eighteen community-based organizations to provide alternative education services, subsidized employment opportunities, case management and mental health services to PACT clients, children and families. The collaboration between the lead agencies and the community-based organizations provide wrap around services to PACT clients and families. Service providers and PACT partner agencies convene monthly for training opportunities to build skills in serving this population and facilitate​ communication across agencies.
