THE STORY:

Hello Everyone,

My name is Carissa Catarella and I have signed up with Boston Partners in Education to run the 2013 Boston Marathon!  It will be my first time running a marathon and I am extremely excited! I hope that with your help I will be able to raise $5,000 for this wonderful organization.  I volunteered for this organization back in 2011 while I worked at State Street Corporation.  I would love to volunteer in the near future if I end up living closer to the Boston area!  Please read below for more information on Boston Partners in Education:

Founded in 1966, Boston Partners in Education enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the personal growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support.

Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for over 45 years. Our trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.

We are working to close the achievement gap. Students with academic mentors improve their scores on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams,  develop a love for reading and math, and, most importantly, stay in school and graduate!

Teachers and mentors report that students receiving extra attention during the school day show an increased interest in school, improved academic performance in math and literacy, enhanced self-esteem, and a better work ethic.

Boston Partners in Education’s unique model of recruiting, screening, training, matching, and supporting academic mentors who not only tutor, but also build a bond with their students over time, has a proven track record of success.

During the 2011-2012 academic year, we matched 3,729 students in 64 schools throughout the city with 655 volunteers.
