Massachusetts Promise Fellow
Massachusetts Promise Fellowship
About the organization
The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship believes that all young people in the Commonwealth have a right to the resources they need to be successful in life. These include; a caring adult, a safe place, a healthy start, an effective education, and an opportunity to serve. We deliver these 5 promises to youth by training emerging leaders who commit one year of service to support and provide these needed resources to youth throughout the Commonwealth.
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.
