Off the Block

The Boston Conservatory's "Off the Block" program offers students a series of substance-free, creative, low-cost events to partake in throughout the school year. 

The goal of the program is to offer students a fun, affordable and responsible alternative to situations in which they may feel pressure to use illegal substances—while simultaneously providing them with opportunities to get to know the greater Boston area. Events typically take place on weekends and range from $5-10.
