HELP US HELP MORE KIDS! The best hour of my week is as a volunteer academic mentor in Mr. Amara's 3rd-grade classroom. This is my 7th school-year! This year, I am helping Sarah get better at math. She is new to the school and very shy, and just needs a little help. Every kid deserves the opportunity to achieve their potential.
Help us recruit and train more academic mentors so we can help more students in more schools.
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.
