Student Nomination Form: Accelerate
Online Matches

Welcome to the Boston Partners in Education student nomination form for our Online Accelerate program offering. Accelerate is designed to support students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, in one-on-one or small group (2-4 students) matches. 

Requesting Online Accelerate Support

All BPS teachers and student support staff may submit a request to match students with a remote mentor regardless of your school’s in-person mentoring status. In an online match, mentors will meet with students remotely during the school day each week. We will rely on teachers or other school staff to create a recurring video meeting link – either through Zoom or Google Meet – and serve as proctors for the safety and security of all parties. It is highly recommended that students have headphones and a quiet space to log into meetings with their online mentors.

If you are looking to nominate high school students or whole classrooms, please review our program offerings here and decide which is best for your students.
