The mission of the Commonwealth Corps service internship program is to engage Massachusetts residents of all ages, backgrounds, and identities in direct service to strengthen communities, address critical needs, and increase volunteerism. Through hands-on experience, Commonwealth Corps members gain professional skills and valuable knowledge while positively impacting diverse communities in our state.  

The Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) is a private, nonprofit agency that oversees the program and supports host site partners and members to find success throughout the program year. The three (3) Commonwealth Corps members with The Possible Zone will serve 10 months in a full-time capacity. They will join a diverse corps of members across Massachusetts who share a common desire to discover their passion and build their network in service to their communities and the Commonwealth.

Each Commonwealth Corps member at TPZ will work directly with TPZ students and full-time educators as a “Co-Teacher” - a second adult in the classroom who will help customize and differentiate instruction and support individual students and student teams as they progress through TPZ’s project-based curriculum.  Each Commonwealth Corps member at TPZ will co-teach six classes per week (2 classes two days per week, and one class two days per week), supporting students social-emotional development, as well as the development of career-related skills.  Throughout their 10-month term of service, each Commonwealth Corps member will receive professional development related to youth development, education, trauma-informed practices, and other key areas of knowledge that will help each member during their term of service and throughout their career. Approximately 75%-80% of each TPZ Commonwealth Corps member’s time will be focused on co-teaching, related preparation and co-planning, and professional development.  In addition, each Commonwealth Corps member at TPZ will spend 20%-25% of their time on a “capstone” capacity building project, which will strengthen TPZ and its program while also helping each Commonwealth Corps member develop lasting knowledge and skills.  Members will also spend time each week on Massachusetts Service Alliance-related activities, which will also be part of their 40 hours of service weekly.
