Boston Partners in Education Branding Coordinator VISTA
 
 
 
Founded in 1966, Boston Partners in Education (Boston Partners) enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the personal growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support. Our primary goal is to support students in grades K-12, providing the extra attention they need to stay in school and graduate. Boston Partners recruits, trains, places, and supports community volunteers (academic mentors) to work in Boston Public Schools (BPS) classrooms with students one-on-one, in small groups, and in whole classroom settings. We focus on reaching students who might otherwise "fall through the cracks"—those children who have gaps in their learning, are struggling academically and personally, and can succeed with the encouragement and guidance of a caring adult academic mentor. On the heels of our 50th anniversary campaign – a celebration of 50 years of service to the Boston Public Schools – Boston Partners in Education aims to serve 25%, or 750, more students in one-on-one and small group academic mentoring matches over the next three to five years. The Branding Coordinator will help inform strategic communications decisions for the organization as we address the awareness gaps and persisting misconceptions that will remain problematic to our growth goal. The VISTA will ensure that the Boston Partners message is reaching the BPS staff, families, and students who could most benefit from our services. The selected VISTA candidate will be a member of the Boston Cares AmeriCorps VISTA program of approximately 15 VISTA members serving at 10 Greater Boston organizations. Pre-Service Orientation (PSO) for this position will be conducted online at the Boston Partners office beginning August 28.
