What We Do

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. 



pictureOur Mission
The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship achieves this by placing AmeriCorps Fellows with 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.


Our 5 Promises
Massachusetts Promise Fellows work to deliver the 5 Promises to youth and their communities. These are well-defined objectives developed in partnership with our host-sites and funders. All Fellow projects align with at least one of these 5 Promises:

Effective Education: Fellows will deliver college and career programming in the Out of School Time setting to ensure youth are prepared to succeed.

Caring Adult: Fellows will implement and expand mentoring programs in the Out of School Time setting to increase the number of youth who experience a consistent caring adult to support their academic achievement.

Safe Place: Fellows will develop and lead academic enrichment activities (tutoring, academic support, homework clubs, etc) for young people in the Out of School Time setting.

Healthy Start: Fellows will coordinate and lead education programs in the Out of School Time setting to develop social and emotional competencies of youth (ex. self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making).

Opportunity to Serve: Fellows will create and lead community service-learning projects with youth in the Out of School Time setting.
