For Students

High School Students

If you’re a junior or senior in high school, one question you probably hear pretty often is: What’s next? Whatever the answer is, taking the next step can feel overwhelming. That’s why we started Boston WINs. Our goal is to help break down barriers so that Boston high school students graduate ready to continue on to post-secondary education or make their mark in the workforce.       

At the high school level, our nonprofits and Boston Public Schools work together in an effort we call “Coordinated Action.” We know that to be prepared for college or the workforce, you need support in four key areas: college admissions, college affordability, college completion coaching, and work experience and career advising. Each of the five Boston WINs partners delivers one or more of these services, and they work together so that students receive all four services by the time they graduate.

College Students

If you’re a graduate of a Boston Public high school and work with one of our Boston WINs partners, consider an internship at State Street. Hear what it’s like to work here and see what opportunities are available for you below.
