Boston Public Library hiring student homework mentors
There are still a few openings for homework mentors with the BPL’s out-of-school time program. Tell a high-achieving teen about this paid work opportunity.
The Boston Public Library’s out-of-school time programming is focused on enrichment, opportunities, partnerships, and youth development. Homework help is still included, and so is a whole lot more. Look for monthly themes in the BPL calendar to see what the BPL youth services team is planning with its outstanding partners. Programming will focus on things like arts, writing, science, math, and robotics each month during the school year. The BPL’s out-of-school time programming is made possible by the Boston Public Library Foundation.
