826 Boston hires four or five teens each year through the Boston Youth Fund to tutor students in our after-school program as paid employees.
These teen tutors work 3-4 hours each afternoon helping younger kids (ages 7-12) with homework, reading comprehension, writing, and other projects. Through this program, they also become eligible to win college scholarships from 826 Boston ($1000+) and to be nominated for Posse Foundation's full scholarships to private universities. We encourage them to work on their writing by attending workshops at 826 Boston (at no cost) and by working with our staff.
If you know a teen who is at least 15 years of age and interested in tutoring younger students, please encourage them to apply!
Directions are listed below.
The application deadline is October 15.
