Thomas Farragher’s column in the Boston Globe is a wonderful story on how a Boston summer camp for city kids helped in the career development of Jamal Grant, founder of
The NET Mentoring Group.
The NET Mentoring Group, Inc. is a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Boston, MA whose purpose is to eradicate the academic achievement gap, particularly in STEM areas. We hope to close the achievement gap by combating both the systematic issues and socio-environmental factors that contribute to it. The NET helps students craft their futures into STEM careers and more by providing a unique combination of STEM programming, mentoring, access to resources and tutoring.
Jamal Grant has a message to the new campers who are being picked up this week for the trip to Long Island.
“Life gives us big gifts disguised in small packages,’’ he said. “That camp has the ability to change Boston.’’
