Beat the Odds (BTO) Boston
2024 Social Innovator
Beat the Odds is dedicated to serving under-resourced youth in Boston’s low-income communities through its Creative Youth Development Program. With the recent decline of funding for music and art programs in public schools, we aim to help fill that void by providing students with a unique opportunity to explore their creativity and unlock their hidden talents. Our mission is to provide a safe space, where young people will have access to the creative tools necessary to inspire self-awareness and encourage mental health and healing from trauma through music and arts.
