Making A Difference

Academics

Over the past five years, 95% of the young men who participate in MYCW programs, graduate from High School. For the past five years, 80% of our young men have matriculated to college. Over the past four years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of young people making the Honor Roll.

Athletics

There are about 300 players in a given year, these include grades 3-11. All grades practice twice per week, and play tournaments on weekends. During the year teams travel to participate in tournaments in Philadelphia, New York, and Connecticut. Locally teams participate in tournaments Waltham, Mansfield, Danvers, Lowell, Taunton, Lawrence, Springfield, and Rhode Island.

Advocacy

After the first report card comes out in November, coaches and ED review to look for red flags, and identify students who will require extra support. As we review report cards and progress reports, we may meet with families to discuss how we can help support and advocate on behalf of student athlete and family.
