Community Relations and Outreach
In addition to providing care and medical services to the Boston Celtics, New England Baptist Hospital works with the Celtics on joint community relations and outreach efforts. The two world class organizations partner on initiatives focused physical fitness, health and wellness, as well as host a variety of community based events throughout the year.
Jr. Celtics Program
New England Baptist Hospital is proud to sponsor the Jr. Celtics program, which challenges over 650 3rd-5th graders to develop their basketball game through skills, drills and leadership training. Youth from local YMCA's and Boston Centers for Youth and Families participate in clinics coached by members of the Celtics, and are then challenged to improve their skills for a chance to come to a Celtics game as a Jr. Celtics All-Star.
In addition to presenting the Jr. Celtics program, NEBH is the presenting sponsor of the annual Junior Celtics Leadership Achievement award, given to youth who create a community service project addressing a specific social issue in their community. The award is given out at New England Baptist night during a Celtics home game.
Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation
NEBH is also the official sponsor of the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, whose mission is to extend the reach of the Celtics championship legacy into the community through programs that directly benefit children in need.
