Nominate Students for Support 

Boston Partners in Education’s programs are designed to support the work of BPS teachers. Faced with growing demands of online instruction, budget cuts, and administrative paperwork, teachers are often looking for help in providing struggling students with the individual attention they need to become better learners. Our proven and innovative approach to training and managing volunteers leaves our academic mentors uniquely equipped to assist in online classrooms.

To request a volunteer for your online classroom, simply identify and nominate students who would benefit from extra help. Students can be nominated at any point throughout the year. Choose from the following program offerings.

BPIE Mentoring Programs


Available to students in grades PreK-2. Motivate offers whole classroom support for students in grades PreK-2, and is designed for early childhood development needs.


Available to students in grades K-8. Accelerate can assist any students in grades K-8 identified by their teacher as needing extra academic or socio-emotional support.

Aim High

Available to all high school students. Aim High supports students in grades 9-12 who have small gaps in skills and knowledge and just need that extra push to find success.

Independent Learning Support

ILS is our new online program that connects students in grades 2-12 with mentors outside of school hours, providing indivualized support after school or on weekends.

“The kids really appreciate that one-on-one help. Hearing them say they’re happy with getting extra help is a memorable moment for me. I’m only one person and I can’t split myself in several different ways – so for the students who need that extra academic support or motivation right then and there, someone is able to step in and give it to them.”

– Ms. Cox, Blackstone Elementary School teacher
