CHAD seeks to enrich and improve the quality of life for underprivileged youth in Boston's Chinatown community. It is committed to the academic, social, and personal development of youth by promoting personal growth among its campers and creating opportunities for developing fundamental social skills, healthy self-identities, high self-esteem, cross-cultural awareness, and social consciousness. The majority of CHAD's campers come from low-income backgrounds that afford few opportunities for summer educational enrichment and employment. The youth of Boston's Chinatown face many obstacles: crime, poverty, gentrification, and lack of support in the city's most overcrowded community. CHAD is dedicated to helping our campers overcome these challenges. Senior Counselors for CHAD are provided housing in suites at Emerson College a few streets down from the heart of Chinatown, allowing them to become immersed in the community in which they work.
