AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellows deliver the resources young people need to be successful in life by creating, managing, and leading meaningful out-of-school time programs for youth in grades 6-12. Fellow projects focus on mentoring, social and emotional learning, college and career readiness, academic enrichment, and community service-learning.

The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship achieves this by placing AmeriCorps Fellows with schools, non-profit organizations and state/local government agencies that focus on fulfilling the needs of our youth by providing: a caring adult, a safe place, a healthy start, a marketable skill, and an opportunity to give back.

Service Description

QUINCY-Established in 2011, the Youth ServiceCorps' (YSC) mission aligns with QARI's mission to "foster and improve the social, cultural, economic and civic lives of Asian Americans" with a focus on Asian high school youth in Quincy and Braintree. The Fellow will work closely with the 10 to 12 Youth Board members and up to 20 Youth Representatives, developing and implementing a curriculum of service learning projects to make a strong, significant, and lasting impact on the community and over 300 YSC members. These youth will plan, coordinate, and execute a series of small community service projects around Greater Boston, as well as some larger community projects, including a year-end celebration, a career day, and fundraising events. The Fellow will be serving a consistent group of 20 to 30 youth, for 35 hours a week, with approximately 15 to 20 of those hours being direct time with youth. The Fellow will lead the development and implementation of a college access curriculum.
