The Opportunity Youth Collaborative is pleased to announce that the Connection Center is open! Run by X-Cel Education and located inside Ruggles Station on the orange line, the Connection Center is a one-stop resource center for young people who are not in school and not working, who want to take the next step in their life. Success Coaches are ready to help work out a plan and are armed with connections to education, training, and career programs.

The Connection Center is open from 12:00 to 8:00 PM Monday through Thursday, and from 12:00 to 5:00 PM on Fridays. No appointment necessary – drop in!
