ORGANIZATION: Boston Partners in Education

Academic Mentor with BPS Student

Volunteer as an academic mentor to Boston Public Schools students!

Interested in working with a BPS student this year? Are you multilingual or do you have other academic skills you'd like to share with students? Are you from Boston and have experience navigating BPS schools? Join the Boston Partners in Education community and become an academic mentor to a BPS student!

What do academic mentors do?

Typically, academic mentors work one-on-one or with a small group of 2-4 students for one hour per-week during the school day over the course of the school year. Select opportunities are also available to work with students online, after school, or on weekends. Student/volunteer matches are made based on your preferences of location, schedule, subject, and grade level.

With guidance from a classroom teacher, academic mentors provide students with additional academic and social-emotional support to help them thrive in the classroom and beyond. Opportunities are available in all grades (pre K-12) and all subject areas.

Mission Statement

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.
