The Harvard Ed Portal builds on Harvard’s commitment to education beyond the classroom through its cornerstone program of academic mentoring by Harvard undergraduates for children and youth in the subject areas of math, science, writing, and the arts. New this fall: Youth may also apply to participate in a variety of clubs that meet on specific days to focus on specific subjects including computer coding, cooking, and biotechnology in a group setting. The program is free and available to children and youth, grades 1-12, who are residents of Allston-Brighton or who attend the Gardner Pilot Academy in North Allston. Approximately 30 Harvard College undergraduate students serve as Ed Portal Mentors each semester. For more information and to apply visit the Fall 2016 Mentoring Program page.
