We Are Hyde Square Task Force

The mission of Hyde Square Task Force is to develop the skills of youth and their families so they are empowered to enhance their own lives and build a strong and vibrant urban community.

Hyde Square Task Force’s programs and civic engagement activities are developed by youth and residents in response to community needs. Youth are at the heart of all our work. We believe that social change is most successful when young people develop the skills to succeed and become committed change-makers. Since its founding, Hyde Square Task Force has developed ongoing programs for youth and families that not only help them advance at school and in careers, but also give them opportunities to take pride and action in their communities.
