Volunteer as an Academic Mentor to Boston Public Schools Students!
Boston Partners in Education is seeking volunteer academic mentors to support Boston’s public schools students by providing them with focused, individualized, in-school mentoring.
Who are Academic Mentors?
Our mentors are people like you and me, devoting time from their busy lives to help our young people succeed. They come from all walks of life, ethnic origins, and levels of education and experience.
What do Academic Mentors do?
Academic mentors work one-on-one or with a small group of 2-4 students for an hour a week during the school day. As an academic mentor, you will support a student’s academic and personal growth, and in many cases become an adult role model. Opportunities are available in all grades (pre K-12) and subject areas.
Student/Volunteer matches are made based on your preferences:
- Subject matter
- Grade level
- One-on-one vs. small group work

What else do I need to know?
No experience is necessary-- just a willingness to help students thrive. Boston Partners provides training and match support to help facilitate a 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.
For additional questions regarding mentoring opportunities, please contact Boston Partners in Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-451-6145. For all other information, please visit http://bostonpartners.org /.
About Boston Partners in Education
44 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA 02210, US
Boston Partners in Education enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support. With the commitment and involvement of the entire community, all students in Boston will develop the skills, self-confidence and motivation to recognize and achieve their full potential.
Boston Partners in Education has been supporting teachers and students in Boston Public Schools for over 50 years. Our trained volunteers serve as academic mentors to help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.
Our academic mentors are community members who volunteers in pre K-12 classrooms in the Boston Public Schools (BPS). Mentors offer support in any subject area, though we focus on ELA and math for grades K-8. They commit to spending the year with the same student, or small group of students, every week for an hour a week during the school day. Ideally, the match stays together over the course of a few years, thus forming a bond that goes beyond academics.
We'll work with your schedule.
