It’s time for Rising Stars 2019!

Please join BOSS and our partners again this year to celebrate local young people who are working hard to stay in school and take care of themselves and their families while overcoming multiple hardships – such as homelessness, substance abuse, criminal justice involvement, and other challenges.
