Currently in its twelfth year, the AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellowship places Fellows who commit to a year of service at non-profit organizations, schools, and city agencies across Massachusetts. Fellows 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 of service to communities across Massachusetts.
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. These 5 promises are delivered to youth by training emerging leaders who commit one year of service to support and provide these needed resources to youth throughout the Commonwealth.
