MassBay is committed to offering opportunities for our students to be mentored by professionals on and off campus and mentor younger students in the community.
100 Males to College — In partnership with Framingham State University, Framingham Public Schools, the Joseph P. Keefe Technical School, and the Metrowest College Planning Center, MassBay staff, faculty, and students provide mentoring to male junior and senior students in Framingham to support them to apply to and succeed in college.
Business Mentoring Program (BMP) — BMP is a collaboration with Jewish Family Service of Metrowest and MassBay’s Business Department. Professional mentors with experience in the subject content embed in business courses to provide students with connecting course concepts with real world experiences. Mentors work with students directly, both individually and in small groups, with the instructor facilitating the engagement.
Mentoring and Academic Support (MAS) Program at Walsh Middle School — The MetroWest College Planning Collaborative in partnership with MassBay Community College, Framingham State University and Latinas en Acción (LEA) provides a mentoring program for Walsh Middle School students in Framingham. Some of the middle school students live with risk factors such as a single parent home, poverty, abuse or parental incarceration. Mentors and mentees spend at least 2 hours a week at Walsh playing games, helping with homework, assisting mentees with setting goals, discussing college readiness and having fun!
Multicultural Mentoring Program (MMP) — Promotes the pursuit of academic success for students from multicultural backgrounds. MMP students and professionals interact in one-to-one mentorship relationships, assisting mentees’ acclimation to college life and preparing them for future careers. MMP’s partnership include Middlesex Savings Bank, Boston Scientific, Verizon, General Dynamics, Meditech, Citizens Bank and Lesley University.
