Key Programs Offered: 

The Youth to Health Careers Program: The Youth to Health Careers Program offers educational programs designed in such a way that a student can start in the 8th grade and continue through high school. Our model works because the teaching tools are designed by teens for teens. Four programs are offered: Introduction to Community Health and Health Careers Summer Enrichment Program Youth to Health Careers (Y2HC) Afterschool Program BAHEC Youth Advisory Board (YAB) Medical Interpreter Training Program Almost 30% of Boston residents were born outside of the United States and there are more than 140 different languages spoken in our neighborhoods. With the growing number of people in our city who speak a language other than English, there is an increasing demand for bilingual and bicultural interpreters in the healthcare setting. Two training options are available to meet the needs and capacity of the healthcare facility. 15-Hour Introductory Course 54-Hour Comprehensive Course
