Brighton Future Forward

About Brighton Future Forward (BFF)

ABCDC’s Brighton Future Forward Program is focused on delivering high-quality and creative youth development programming for young people living at two of the Boston Housing Authority/BHA developments in Brighton (Commonwealth Development/Fidelis Way and Faneuil Gardens).

Our Youth Development Coordinators provide academic support, enrichment, arts education, financial empowerment, leadership training, and civic engagement opportunities for youth. In 2021, our staff offered programs including;

  • Offering daily homework help and snack time
  • Studying plant lifecycles by planting daffodil bulbs
  • Celebrating holidays including Dia de los Muertos and Halloween
