Who does The NET serve?
The NET serves inner city students ranging from 3rd grade to 12th grade.
What makes The NET's model unique?
We are a non-traditional organization in that our focus is to help build the proverbial "village" that is needed to raise the child. To do this, we strive to build continuity within students' lives as they stay involved with us from 3rd-12th grade. Our mentors not only build social consciousness and a sense of self-worth in our students via group mentoring, but also spend the time to connect each student to the resources/programs/organizations in Boston that will help students find their own path to success.

Why should my organization join The NET?
At The NET, we believe that it takes a village to raise a child. Practically, this means that it takes more than just a good school, more than just an extracurricular program and more than just self-confidence; it takes the combination of all those things and more. We want your organizations to join The NET network so that students can more easily access the resources in their community with the guidance of a mentor to ensure that each student gets connected to her/his personal "village" of organizations. This model will help build continuity in each student's life and raise the collective effectiveness of programs and organizations already doing great work in the city.
