Each year mentoring awards are given to approximately 25 undergraduates in Harvard College to provide mentoring to Allston-Brighton youth in science, math, writing, public speaking, and the arts at the Ed Portal. Undergraduates go through a rigorous application and selection process. Mentors are committed to the vision of the Ed Portal to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with youth from the community.
Under the direction of Professor Robert Lue, Faculty Director of the Ed Portal, Harvard Allston Mentors with backgrounds in the sciences, mathematics and/or writing engage with children of a variety of ages and backgrounds, boosting their interest in and encouraging further exploration of these topics.
