To kick off the school season, the staff at Boston Partners in Education organized a panel discussion to provide teachers and academic mentors with a platform to share the reasons they partner with us and explain the impact it has on the Boston Public Schools. Audience members participated in this critical conversation surrounding the power of mentoring and also received the opportunity to learn more about how to become a mentor for the upcoming school year. The panelists’ testimonies proved that the work we do holds true value and makes a difference in the lives of Boston’s public school children.
