Student Nomination Form: Motivate
In-Person Matches

Motivate is designed to support students in grades K0-5 in a whole classroom setting. If you are looking to nominate students for a one-on-one or small group match, please review our program offerings here and decide which is best for your students.

The Motivate program will only be taking place in-person for the 2021-22 school year.

Boston Partners in Education’s academic mentoring programs are considered a direct service to students which means BPS is allowing our volunteers to return in-person. However, before you can submit a nomination for in-person mentoring, we need to receive permission from your School Leader for mentors to come into the building. If you would like to submit a nomination for in-person support, and your school is not an option on the form, please contact Sara Kilroy at [email protected] and she will contact your school leader as soon as possible. 

Only schools that have completed the necessary steps will be available to make in-person nominations. 

Terms & Conditions

To begin, please verify that you agree to the following terms and conditions:
  1. I will provide adequate space and materials for mentors to work with their students.
  2. I will provide the mentor with a designated space. This can be in a classroom with one specific set of students, or in a shared space with programming occurring at different times with cleaning by each program volunteer at the end of their session.
  3. I will ensure that the student(s) is following the COVID safety guidelines, including wearing a mask during the session and calling the mentor if they have been a close contact to a COVID case. 
  4. I will communicate with the academic mentor(s) to discuss student progress and provide feedback.
  5. I will fill out a survey from Boston Partners in Education two times per year regarding student progress.
  6. I will assist Boston Partners in Education in collecting parent permission slips by sending them home with students and submitting them to Boston Partners in Education staff.
  7. I will respond to periodic email check-ins from Boston Partners in Education staff.
  8. I will update Boston Partners in Education staff if the students served by the match change.
  9. This request has been approved by my principal/headmaster.
