On Wednesday, August 26, Boston Public Schools teachers and academic mentors met at the Bruce Bolling Building in Dudley Square to discuss Boston Partners’ work supporting students, and the impact our work has had over the years.

Mentors discussed what a typical day of mentoring is like, and how their mentor experience has influenced their own lives as well as the lives of students they serve. Current and prospective volunteer academic mentors were also provided a chance to fill out their necessary CORI/SORI paperwork, ensuring they’re ready to serve in BPS classrooms this fall!
