Description

The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship (MPF) is an AmeriCorps program dedicated to increasing youth academic enrichment and college and career exploration through Out-of-School-Time (OST) interventions and data-driven programming. We are a passionate team that strives every day to empower young people to succeed as part of a national movement to achieve education equity. We do this because we believe that all young people have a right to Caring Adults, Safe Spaces, A Healthy Start, An Effective Education, and An Opportunity to Serve.

As a Mass Promise Fellow, you will serve at one of our partner youth-serving programs at schools, city agencies, and community-based organizations in Massachusetts. Your mission will be to build intentional relationships with young people between 6th and 12th grade and support their academic engagement or post-secondary success. You will work to decrease the dropout rate, close the opportunity gap, and support the futures of youth. If you believe in the power of relationship building to positively impact the life of a young person, this role is for you.
