Independent Learning Support
Family/Student Nomination Form

Boston Partners in Education's Independent Learning Support program matches interested 3rd through 12th grade BPS students with volunteer academic mentors. Students meet virtually with mentors once a week outside of school time to improve their academic performance and receive any needed help.

If you would like to nominate your student to be matched with a mentor, please complete the following nomination form. Please direct any questions to Claire Hammer via email at [email protected] or call 617.451.6145.
