The Quantum Opportunities Program serves the high school youth of the Field’s Corner neighborhood of Dorchester.  Working with Jeremiah E. Burke High School, where the program is located, Quantum provides remedial education, youth development activities and youth leadership training to a mix of African American, West Indian (Jamaican and Trinidadian) and Cape Verdean students.

So highly regarded is the Quantum program, that the Foundation, the Dorchester Youth Collaborative and school administrators are developing plans to make Quantum a regular part of the school curriculum for each incoming freshman cohort.
