Be a Fellow

Applications for the 2024-2025 Service Year will be opening soon. Please complete the MPF Interest Form if you’d like to receive a notification when the application becomes available.


HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship (MPF) operates using a scattered site model placing Fellows (AmeriCorps Members) in cities across the state (Greater Boston, North Shore, Cape Cod, South Shore, etc.). Fellows have a strong impact on students thanks to partnerships with nonprofit organizations, schools, and city agencies. When you are accepted into the program, you are assigned to a host site where you will build relationships and deliver out-of-school time (OST) programming to a cohort of young people between the grades of 6-12.

Over the course of your service year, your goal will be to increase youth academic engagement – a key factor in dropout prevention – and/or to support the college and career aspirations of each young person.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • Have a high school diploma or GED
  • Be 17 year old by July 1, 2024
  • Be willing to comply with a criminal background check and fingerprint check
  • Be a U.S. Citizen, U.S. National, or Permanent Resident
  • Able to serve full-time (40 hours per week) from August 2024 – July 2025

HOW TO APPLY

  • Review the open service positions. Each opening is linked to a service description detailing the Fellow project at one of our partner host sites. Please read through and carefully consider your needs, interests, and goals when thinking about where you might be during your year of service.
  • Complete the online application. Be prepared to choose your preferred host site placements, provide contact information for your references, and upload your resume and cover letter (or audio and work experience form in lieu of resume and cover letter).
  • Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Your time of submission determines which round you will be considered and interviewed in.
  • If you experience any technical issues with completing the application, please email Mona Miao at m.miao@northeastern.edu for support.

The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship provides reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities at every stage of the application process. Disclosing a disability or requesting a need for accommodations is a separate process from admissions and will have absolutely no bearing on a candidate’s application status. MPF will make every effort to meet your request, but specific requests are not guaranteed. All disclosed information will be kept confidential and only shared with prospective site placement if requested by the candidate.

If you need to request an accommodation, please contact Mona Miao at m.miao@northeastern.edu.
