Boston Mobilization, TCS Affiliate, Closing its Door

TCS working to carry on its programs

We are sad to report that Boston Mobilization, a major player in Greater Boston social justice work for over 40 years and an affiliate of The City School since 2017, is closing its doors. Its “SubUrban Justice” after school program has sent many youth into TCS’s Summer Leadership Program; and the two organizations have partnered in many youth activism and training endeavors over the years.

The good news is: Boston Mobilization’s Social Justice Leadership Institute (SJLI) will carry on under The City School!  There are two Institutes planned for this coming fall and winter, and SubUrban Justice youth will be involved in these impactful trainings. Moving forward, Mobe and TCS staff are working with partners to set up support systems for youth. 

We at The City School salute and thank the many youth, activists, donors, and public figures who have supported and worked with Boston Mobilization over the years. We pledge to carry on its work, legacy, and mission, which is essentially the same as ours:  “working for justice, across differnce.”


Summer Leadership Program 2019

The City School's flagship program, The Summer Leadership Program brings together a community of over 80 young people, young adults and staff to support young people to develop leadership and fight for social justice. Thanks to all our incredible participants, emerging leaders, staff and community partners for supporting a transformative summer in 2019! Check out our SLP 2019 Data Snapshot


We partnered with Community Labor United and Green Justice Coalition on Transit affordability! Check out some of the footage from our day of action, filmed by NECN and 7 News Boston.
