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.
