Tutoring with the Steppingstone Scholars Program

School year volunteer tutor — not accepting applications at this time

Want to directly impact the lives of promising, motivated Scholars? Then join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school! Volunteer tutors help Scholars complete homework, facilitate educational games and activities, supervise recess, and more.



Steppingstone S.M.A.S.H.

We are no longer accepting volunteer applications. Please check back in September!

Offered every Saturday throughout the academic year, SMASH (Saturday Mentoring and Study Hall) is a two-hour study hall where Scholars can work independently, collaborate with other students, and receive one-on-one tutoring.

Volunteers support Scholars by serving as tutors and mentors, and these meaningful relationships help students gain confidence, build their academic skills, and stay on track for college.

The Board of Young Professionals

Are you a young professional in the city of Boston who’d like to give your time and talents to support the mission of The Steppingstone Foundation? Consider applying for a position on the Board of Young Professionals (BYP)! The Steppingstone Foundation’s Board of Young Professionals (BYP) engages individuals in their 20s and 30s representing a variety of career fields to support Steppingstone’s mission of college success for students from historically marginalized communities. Members of the BYP are committed to advancing the efforts of Steppingstone through volunteering, fundraising, mentoring Scholars, and networking.

The Board meets monthly during the school year and takes the summer off.

For more information on the Board of Young Professionals, please email BYP@tsf.org.
