Current Projects

The Center’s initial work focuses on place-based initiatives within Boston, primarily the Boston Promise Initiative led by the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, one of only twenty-one sites in the nation recently awarded by the Obama administration. It also includes developing, in conjunction with local funders, national, and community organizations, a community of practice to evaluate best practice for community change.
