Assistant Headmaster, Edward M Kennedy Academy for Health Careers
"I would rate YMC’s presentations to our students at The Boston Counseling and Intervention Center to be among the best presentations for young people that I have witnessed and listened to in schools in my nearly 20 years of employment within the Boston Public Schools!".
"In a time when conflict and misunderstanding are rampant, YMC is clearly an effort that is able to assist young people in navigating diverse worlds and cultures in a way that leads forward, toward service and healing."

"What sets Young Merchants apart from other education leaders is its mission reaches far beyond the academy and its work reverberates in the local community, inciting practical action towards the development of global citizens."
