Nonprofit EVKids receives BII investment

EVKids is a Boston-based nonprofit that matches area college students with school children to provide them with academic tutoring and mentorship. The organization’s summer camp also provides an opportunity for inner-city children to experience the outdoors. The nonprofit has experienced great success, with 100% of its students in the tutoring program graduating from high school, compared with just 72% of Boston public school students. Historically, all EVKids graduates go on to college or other post-secondary program. In 2019 BII provided a line of credit that will help EVKids navigate funding cycles. We are excited to welcome EVKids to the BII portfolio!
