BELL was founded in Boston in 1992 and first served students at the Tobin Elementary & Middle School in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood. In addition to long-standing programs and a strong partnership with Boston Public Schools, Boston continues to serve as BELL’s national headquarters and center for research and program development. The organization first piloted its Boys of BELL initiative, tested a wide range of enrichment courses and partners, and developed an alumni engagement strategy in the city. BELL's summer learning program was first proven to be effective in Boston through a rigorous, independent study.

The organization continues to serve as a strategic partner to Boston Public Schools and welcomes opportunities to form new partnerships with schools and districts throughout Massachusetts.
