2017 was a year of powering possibilities.

In the spirit of the holiday season, we want to take a moment to reflect on all that The Possible Project (TPP), its dedicated and committed partners and cherished students have accomplished over the past year. In 2017, The Possible Project….

* Completed our first full year of our formal partnership with Boston Public Schools, where TPP occupies 7,000 square feet of dedicated space — including nearly 3,000 square feet that contains Makerspace equipment.

* Helped our students achieve a nearly perfect matriculation rate from high school to college — this is twice the national average.

* Developed and approved a 5-year strategic plan that will help us exponentially increase the number of impacted students by the year 2021.

* Worked closely with dedicated partners in STEAM programming and work readiness, including Pfizer and Life Science Cares to provide our students with real-world work experiences.

The Possible Project is built on the strength of our community, school and corporate partners that are equally committed to bettering the lives of students—we thank you for the invaluable work that you do to help close the opportunity gap in our communities.

Now, with your help, we can look forward...

  • We are on track to enroll 1,000 students by the year 2021.
  • We are working with BPS to develop a 20,000 square foot Makerspace facility to serve students from more than five Boston schools.
  • We are conducting a randomized control trial in collaboration with Harvard and MIT to prove that our program works at scale to develop social and emotional learning, technical and life skills.


Your partnership, investment and engagement are critical to implementing the foundations of hope, confidence and resilience that our program provides to students in our communities-thank you.
