the neighborhood center
The Boston College Neighborhood Center opened its doors on Washington Street in the heart of Brighton Center in January 1995. The Center was founded as an agency through which Boston College could provide resources to the Allston-Brighton community. In correlation with the mission of Boston College, the Center is committed to the university's Jesuit ideal of service. We seek to offer opportunities that will enhance a student's college experience while simultaneously meeting the needs of the Allston- Brighton community to the greatest extent possible. Additionally, the Center's location, directly in the neighborhood, helps to facilitate the many partnerships that Boston College cultivates with the Allston-Brighton community. In August 2013, the Boston College Neighborhood Center moved - just down the street - to its current location at 480 Washington Street in Brighton.
