Boston Partners in Education is seeking volunteer academic mentors for students in the Boston Public Schools during the 2016-2017 school year.

Academic mentors work one-on-one or with a small group of 2-4 students for an hour a week during the school day. Opportunities are available in all grades (K-12) in literacy, math, and science subjects.

Boston Partners in Education provides training and match support to help facilitate a happy and successful match. We are required by the Boston Public Schools to run a CORI/SORI background check on each potential volunteer; this background check is run at no cost to you.

Student/Volunteer matches are made based on your preferences:

  • Location

  • Time of day (during school hours)

  • Day of week (M-F)

  • Subject matter

  • Grade level

  • One-on-one vs. small group work
