Accelerating Academic & Social Equity

JFS is working to reduce educational inequities among low-income immigrants and first-generation college students through programs that support students and their families with mentoring, basic needs assistance, and academic tutoring.

Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success

JFS’ Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success (PAGES) – formerly Reducing Achievement Gaps – program gives the most economically and educationally challenged young school-age children and their families the support they need to succeed in school and in life.

Pathways to College Success

Emerging partnerships with Mass Bay Community College, Framingham State University and DUET accelerate higher education achievement and social equity.
