Massachusetts Promise Fellowship – 2013-14 Service Positions Now Open

By: Chris Loney | Wednesday, April 17, 2013

uAspire has partnered with the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship during the last several years to help youth across the Commonwealth find an affordable pathway to college. We are excited to announce that, for the 2013-14 school year, uAspire and the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship will work together again to serve college-aspiring youth in Springfield and Lawrence.

We currently have two MPF service positions open – one in Springfield and one in Lawrence. These services roles are an opportunity for those who have a desire to strengthen their community – and, specifically with uAspire, help middle and high school students realize their dreams of going to college.

In return for their year of service, Mass Promise Fellows receive a wide range of benefits. They include:

  • A taxable living allowance of $269/week
  • Comprehensive health care benefits
  • Excellent training opportunities
  • FREE courses at Northeastern University in the College of Professional Studies
  • Loan forbearance and a $5,550 educational award

About Massachusetts Promise Fellowship

The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship believes that all young people in the Commonwealth have a right to the resources that they need to be successful in life, including a caring adult, a safe place, a healthy start, an effective education, and an opportunity to serve. We deliver these 5 promises to youth by training emerging leaders who commit one year of service to support and provide these needed resources to youth throughout the Commonwealth. Currently in its fourteenth year, the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship places Fellows who commit to a year of service at non-profit organizations, schools, and city agencies across Massachusetts to create, lead, and manage youth development projects. The Fellowship has placed over 200 Fellows at over 80 host sites to provide over 350,000 hours to communities across Massachusetts. www.masspromisefellows.org.
