    What is BOOM? BOOM is a site based, one on one, mentoring program whose goal is to identify and service 225 youth, between 4th and 8th grade; BOOM is designed, specifically, to meet the needs of children across the City of New York, and especially the Bronx; by providing mentors to our community, the community of youth in this City, the Bronx One on One Mentoring program (BOOM) can begin to help guide the lives of youth in ways that can speak, more directly, to their individual needs.
