Boston Neighborhood Studies
EGC, in partnership with the Boston Capacity Tank and others, is undertaking the Youth Violence Systems Project (YVSP), an initiative that incorporates community, academic, and institutional perspectives on the causality of youth violence in Boston. We want to be a catalyst for increased dialogue among a cross-section of stakeholders about youth violence in Boston.
Since the project began in Spring 2008, we have published six neighborhood briefing documents (Uphams Corner, Grove Hall, Bowdoin/Geneva, South End/Lower Roxbury, Greater Dudley, Morton/Norfolk) that provide history, demographics and trends, assets (including schools, organizations, and faith communities) and public safety concerns. Links to download the documents are below. Updated data will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
This is the Mapping America: Every City, Every Block website.
