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.

Description

Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for over 45 years. Our trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.

We are working to close the achievement gap. Students with academic mentors improve their scores on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams, develop a love for reading and math, and, most importantly, stay in school and graduate!

Teachers and mentors report that students receiving extra attention during the school day show an increased interest in school, improved academic performance in math and literacy, enhanced self-esteem, and a better work ethic.

Boston Partners in Education’s unique model of recruiting, screening, training, matching, and
supporting academic mentors who not only tutor, but also build a bond with their students over time, has a proven track record of success.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, we matched over 5,000 students in 72 schools throughout the city with 732 volunteers, resulting in over 27,700 volunteer hours and a total in-kind contribution of nearly $1.3 million to Boston Public Schools.
