Central American Young Men

Central American youth—most of them unaccompanied minors—have experienced unspeakable violence. Roca’s Central American Youth Initiative seeks to ensure the most urgent form of social justice for a group of young people that is perhaps the most forgotten and excluded within our borders. Partnering with police, schools, and cities to provide a continuum of prevention and intervention services, Roca has developed and nurtured a community in Greater Boston that is actively helping these young people heal.
