Believe it or not, I (along with Aida Maher, my running buddy/enabler for nearly 20 Years) am headed back to the starting line of the Boston Marathon this year! The last time we crossed the finish line was WELL over a decade ago and we are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to run it together, and to support an organization that is making such a difference - Boston Partners in Education. Thank you for joining me in helping spread the word and enhance the futures of so many Boston Public School Children!

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.
