Beacon Hill Village PRESENTS "Conversations With TITo SAntosSILVA" ON MONDAY, May 2 at 5:30 PM.
Francisco “Tito” SantosSilva knows all about urban violence. As a young man growing up in Brockton, his educational and professional journey was almost derailed by street violence which took the life of a close friend. Since completing his education, he has worked to help young people from underserved communities reach their potential, including work with the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services supporting incarcerated young adults. Now he is meeting another immense challenge as the executive director of Boston Uncornered, which seeks, as its name suggests, to help gang-involved Boston youth find their way from a street corner to college instead of to prison. Come hear about Boston Uncornered's inspiring work, and learn how you might help.
This virtual program is presented with support from Cambridge Trust as part of Beacon Hill Village’s Conversations With… series. Registration required online in advance here or by calling Beacon Hill Village at 617-723-9713. Registrants will receive the Zoom invitation information in advance of the program. Free and open to the public.
