As part of our school year program, Breakthrough Greater Boston operates an academic mentoring program for its middle school and high school students. Academic Mentors (AMs) support students who need additional assistance with classwork and homework throughout the school year while providing mentorship to students by offering guidance around non-cognitive skills such as study skills, organization, and self-advocacy. Academic mentoring sessions will consist of tutoring in core academic subjects identified by Breakthrough staff as well as coaching around effective study habits and strategies. At each campus, AMs report directly to the Academic Mentor Coordinator and Director of Student Services.
For high school and college students, please email a copy of your school transcript (unofficial copies are acceptable) and Sections I-IV of the Academic Mentor Application (attached) to email@example.com with the subject line “Academic Mentor – Boston” or “Academic Mentor – Cambridge.”
For professionals, please email your resume, cover letter, and Sections I-III of the Academic Mentor Application (attached) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Academic Mentor – Boston” or “Academic Mentor – Cambridge.”
