Mentor Programs

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.

Some of our current mentoring programs and initiatives:

  • 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 Verizon, General Dynamics, Meditech, Citizens Bank and Lesley University.

  • 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.

  • STEM Mentor Program — The goals of the STEM Mentor Program are to nurture STEM students’ academic success and support students’ pursuit of their academic and career aspirations by facilitating one-on-one mentoring relationships and providing STEM-focused events, programs and opportunities. Employer partnerships include Sanofi Genzyme, MathWorks, the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Food and Drug Administration, Winchester Analytical Engineering Center. The program is funded by Sanofi Genzyme, STEM Starter Academy and MathWorks.

  • Boston Scientific Mentoring Program (BSMP) — Works to promote academic success for students majoring in business. Students are matched in 1:1 mentoring relationships with professionals working at Boston Scientific.

  • Walsh Middle School/LEA — MassBay students, working in conjunction with Framingham State University and Latinas en Accion (LEA), serve as mentors to children attending Walsh Middle School 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 1 hour a week at Walsh playing games, helping with homework, assisting mentees with goal setting, discussing college readiness and having fun!
