When City Mission educates churches, students, youth groups, seminarians, and college groups, our staff and volunteers help develop leaders for today and tomorrow. We believe in spreading the knowledge around and encouraging people to learn more about their communities, themselves, and the systems that affect everyone. Our educational opportunities focus on homelessness prevention and the systems that impact it: poverty, racism, and inequality.

Seminarian in the City: The Seminarian in the City program equips our future church leaders by creating a space for students to actively engage the issues of faith and social justice as they pertain to urban ministry.
Social Justice Internships: An opportunity for high school students to spend five weeks in the summer to explore some of the root causes and consequences of poverty, inequality, and racism through an introduction to public policy, service learning, communications, and nonprofit organizational structure.
Boston Immersion: Youth groups and college groups have the opportunity to come to Boston for a weekend of service learning. Through a combination of volunteerism, learning opportunities, and guided reflection, youth ages 13-22 learn more about homelessness and homelessness prevention in the city.
