The LEAH Project is looking for a 2017-2018 Americorps Massachusetts Promise Fellow!
The Leaders through Education, Action and Hope (LEAH) Project, a program of Health Resources in Action (HRiA), is a college access, job readiness, and youth development initiative that recruits, trains, and supports low-income, high school students of color in Boston Public Schools (BPS), known as “LEAH Mentors,” to teach science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) lessons and provide homework help to elementary school students. The LEAH Project's mission is to cultivate the power of youth to transform their lives and communities through science, education, and service.
The Fellow will lead and enhance the LEAH Project’s College Readiness Program (CRP), working directly and consistently with 25 youth (sophomores - seniors) throughout the year. Through the CRP, the Fellow will work to increase the college-readiness of LEAH Mentors including college visits, parent engagement events, college workshops, youth orientation training, weekly youth meetings, and individual meetings with youth.
