Defining Moments
At RFK Children’s Action Corps, we believe that the children in our care should have the same opportunities as
other children in the community. Here are some of the wonderful moments children experienced this year:
• A production of Hamlet was performed by boys
at the Springfield Secure Treatment Services for
other residents, their families, and staff.
• 35 youth from programs throughout the
agency received their GED certificates or high
school diplomas.
• More than 300 youth attended a talent show put
on by girls in the Youth Leadership Program for Girls
(YLPG) that helped raise awareness of gun violence.
Clowns, vampires, and ballerinas competed in
pie-eating contests and braved a haunted house
created by staff at the Lancaster Campus’ annual
Halloween party.
Boys from the White Street Group Home visited
with the elderly at nursing homes, and prepared
and served food at the Loaves and Fishes Soup
Kitchen in Springfield.
Residents at the Lawrence Community
Re-entry Center received valuable job training
through a 40-hour apprenticeship program, which
culminated in a Lead Abatement and Asbestos
Removal Training Certificate and an entry-level job
that pays $14 per hour.

Niyyah Asim
All children rebel to some extent. But for Niyyah Asim,
being rebellious was a way of life. “When I was younger,
I would throw tantrums to get what I wanted. When I
was 12, I had detention every day. By the time I was 15,
I was having fights and hanging out with kids who were
doing all the wrong things.”
A turning point came when she was involved in an accident while driving a stolen truck, and her mother turned
her in to the police. “We went to court the next day and
the judge put me on probation,” Niyyah remembers.
“But I wouldn’t do anything my probation officers said.
Whenever I would get called back for breaking probation,
my lawyer would get me out of it.”
Eventually, Niyyah was sent to a residential treatment
program. When she continued to break the rules, she
was sent to the RFK Children’s Action Corps’ Fay A.
Rotenberg School in North Chelmsford, the only secure
treatment program for girls in Massachusetts. The
Rotenberg School was the one system Niyyah couldn’t
manipulate. The staff was strict yet caring. Privileges
were earned and rules and responsibilities enforced.

“I met girls from horrible backgrounds,” she says.
“Rape victims, prostitutes, girls who were abandoned
by their parents. These were girls with real issues and
I was playing games. I realized that if I wanted a future,
I needed to stop fighting and apply myself in therapy.
I was discharged within three months.”
Niyyah went on to work at the Department of Youth
Services (DYS) and sometimes goes back to the
Rotenberg School to talk with the girls there. “No one
knows the importance of freedom until they lose it,”
says Niyyah, who is now a student at Pine Manor
College. “The struggle for improving is a never-ending

“My brother Bobby would be inspired by all you’re doing to carry on
his unfinished work, and to help all those living in even the deepest
shadows, about whom he cared so much. I’m proud that this organization
is carrying on his legacy and his ideals. You make a real difference in the
lives of children in Massachusetts. No one does it better, and I congratulate
you on your success.”
