Teen Bridge Intern Vlad Mesidor’s Video

Vladimir "Vlad" Mesidor, a Teen Bridge participant and a junior at Boston Collegiate Charter School, interned with us in January. He assisted instructors at our schoolhouse and created a video about the Teen Bridge. Watch Vlad's video here.

"The Eliot School and the Teen Bridge program have allowed me to grow not only as a young artist but as a person. I’ve learned real-life skills like managing money, preparing for interviews, and public speaking. Teen Bridge has also helped me through one of the hardest times in my life."
– Vladimir Mesidor

In Loving Memory of Maggie Hill  

Maggie Hill was a student of the Eliot School for over four decades and a cherished face at our schoolhouse. Maggie passed away recently due to cancer, surrounded by family and friends––loved by many. Our Maggie Hill Scholarship commemorates Maggie’s love for craft and spirit of generosity. The scholarship will allow several students each year to attend classes tuition-free. We are pleased to honor one of the Eliot School’s most treasured and long-standing students.
