Staff / Seasonal

Noble and Greenough School, Dedham, MA

Achieve partners with families to empower motivated students from Boston to close the opportunity gap. With
middle school programming and support through high school and college, our community provides transformative
academic and enrichment experiences, and fosters enduring mentoring relationships that inspire confidence,
learning and joy.

Achieve students are motivated, resilient and thoughtful young people who grow into extraordinary leaders. Our
middle school scholars attend Boston’s district and charter public schools, come from low-income families, and
represent diverse ethnicities, religions, and family backgrounds. Achieve seeks to increase our students’ academic
skills, sense of self and put them on the path to college.
Despite the limitations of the current pandemic, we aim to continue building strong relationships with our students
while engaging them in a rigorous academic experience, in-person. Lead Teachers are critical members of the
Achieve team, and they are essential to our students’ academic and personal success. Candidates must possess a
strong interest in working with urban students in a fun, challenging, and enriching academic environment.
