Descripción

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 college and career readiness and academic enrichment.  


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, an effective education, and an opportunity to serve.

The Fellow will work as a team with the Pathways  Manager to meet the ever-changing needs of the teens in our programs. They will provide college and career counseling to youth both  one-on-one and in groups, support the ZUMIX Teen Council, and co-design and implement work-readiness training for our youth  employees.
