Give the gift of mentorship to a Boston Public Schools student.
All students deserve an equal chance.
We must continue to level the playing field for students disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the trauma of racial injustice. Your donation to Boston Partners in Education will allow us to provide mentors to students in need of academic and socio-emotional support right now – at no cost to them or their families.
Each financial contribution helps us increase the number of students we serve and allows us to bring our mentoring programs online, directly to students no matter where they work and learn this year.
