Providing Allston-Brighton residents with opportunities to access and participate in Harvard educational programs.
The Ed Portal’s Faculty Speaker Series brings Harvard faculty members to the Ed Portal for public lectures and discussions on a variety of topics. HarvardX for Allston, a new educational initiative stemming from HarvardX, combines online learning opportunities for Allston-Brighton residents with in-person programs at the Ed Portal.
The Ed Portal also provides access to various Harvard educational resources throughout the year, including scholarship programs to enroll in classes at the Harvard Extension School. Allston-Brighton residents can also sign up to take free computer skills classes through the Harvard Allston Workforce Collaborative.
