Boston Boabom and the Community
Since its inception, the Boston School of Boabom has held the goal of participating in and aiding the community. From donating gift certificates to charitable organizations, to offering free or significantly discounted instruction to schools and other not-for-profit groups, the Boston School of Boabom continues to expand its efforts in community outreach and charitable efforts. We believe that being a part of our community means helping that community in whatever ways that we can, and that beyond the services we offer at our school, it is our responsibility to reach out to those around us.
If you belong to or know of a charitable or not-for-profit organization that would be interested in donations, if you are a teacher, student, or administrator at a school and would like to organize an introductory class, or if you can think of any other ways in which we can contribute to the community around us, please contact us directly.
Below is a partial list of school and local events at which we have taught or participated, as well as organizations to which we have donated.
