College Bound Dorchester targets the people they call "the core influencers" — those young people most responsible for much of the trouble in the neighborhoods, rather than plucking out the the most promising students and putting them on a path to success outside of the neighborhood.

Guests

Mark Culliton, CEO of College Bound Dorchester.

Kamaul Parker, college readiness adviser at College Bound Dorchester.

Valerie Cirilo, student at Bunker Hill Community College helped by College Bound Dorchester.

This segment aired on August 7, 2015.
