Spring 2017 Mentoring Program (Grades 9-12)

Registration Deadline 02/06/2017

Children and adolescents in the 1st-12th grades are paired one-on-one or in small groups with Harvard undergraduate students who make learning exciting by creating hands-on activities tailored to individual interests, and serve as college-age role models.  By supporting creativity, curiosity, validating questions and instilling the skills to search for answers, our undergraduate Mentors encourage youth to develop strong self-identities as enthusiastic learners.  The Mentoring Program seeks to break down traditional walls between subjects by incorporating visual art, music and technology into writing, math, science and public speaking.  

One-on-one mentoring sessions are available for students who are in grades 9-12 who would like a deeper dive into their current course work of interest. 

Mentoring is a 10-week long program. Mentoring sessions take place once a week, 50-minutes in length and are offered Monday through Thursday at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m., or 6 p.m.

PLEASE NOTE:  Harvard Ed Portal membership is required for participation.  Membership eligibility is restricted to residents of Allston-Brighton or students who attend the Gardner Pilot Academy.  For membership information:
