Boston Partners in Education's Story:
Helping students realize and achieve their full potential since 1966
Boston Partners in Education was founded in 1966 with a single goal: to give the children who are struggling in school the tools necessary to become better learners. We achieve this by mobilizing community members to serve as volunteer academic mentors to K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools (BPS).
Fostering community involvement to close achievement gaps
We are dedicated to building sustainable partnerships with individuals and organizations in order to support the entire BPS community. For over 50 years, we’ve placed academic mentors directly in the classroom, during the school day, to help students fill gaps in their knowledge. The consistent service of our trained volunteers provides students with the additional support they need to stay in school and graduate!
Connecting community to classroom so students can make the grade
At Boston Partners in Education, we believe all students have the potential, and should have the opportunity, to succeed. By matching academically at-risk children with caring adults who believe in them, we are investing in their futures… and in ours.
