The mission of CSAPP is to help youth become educated, productive adults and citizens who contribute to society.

The goals of the agency are to reduce teenage pregnancy and other risky behaviors, increase school retention and completion, promote a culture of high expectations, and support youth to overcome barriers that interfere with the development of stable families and healthy communities.

Founded in 1978, CSAPP is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization located in Boston Public Schools that links with community based organizations to help all youth. We are a school-based agency that promotes responsible behavior and healthy decision-making among Boston’s culturally and linguistically diverse youth. We are the only organization of its kind that offers a year-round continuum of services provided by a licensed, Masters-level staff. We have earned the trust of students, parents, educators, collaborators, and funders.
