A project called MARS (Music, Arts, Rhythm, Social Change) started in 2014 by Quinn to bring together artists, musicians, filmmakers, speakers, organizations, and individuals promoting social change and civic responsibility locally and globally to inspire and create change.

Tia Quinn fell in love with after school programs in 1992 while working in Hartford, CT as an art teacher. By providing after school programs with resources and quality training opportunities, BOOST Collaborative has made a global impact on the possibilities of youth development.
