  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Recruiting Organization: Boston Partners in Education

Looking to help Boston Public Schools students in these unprecedented times? With the adjustment to virtual learning, the need for student support has never been greater. Boston Partners in Education is seeking bilingual, volunteer academic mentors to support English Learners (EL) in the Boston Public Schools. Spanish, Cape Verdean Creole, Mandarin and Vietnamese speakers are in high demand, but all languages are welcome. This opportunity is for the 2021-22 school year, which spans from September to June.

Who are Academic Mentors?

Our mentors are community members like you and me, devoting time from their daily lives to help our young people succeed. They come from all walks of life, ethnicities, and levels of education and experience.

What do Academic Mentors do?

Academic mentors work one-on-one or in a small group with students for an hour a week during the school day. As an academic mentor, you help provide the extra individual attention that supports a student’s academic and personal growth, as well as needed consistency in these uncertain times. Virtual opportunities are available in all grades and subject areas.

Student/Volunteer matches are made based on your preferences:

  • Availability
  • Subject matter
  • Grade level (pK-12)

Ready to make a difference in the lives of Boston Public Schools students? Apply now at: We will reach out late summer/early fall with next steps!

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.

Matching priority will be given to those who currently live or have lived in the Greater Boston Area.
