Be a Tutor
Volunteer tutors work alongside Nativity faculty to supervise the students and serve as one-on-one tutors with the boys as they complete their daily homework assignments. No prior experience is necessary, but your skills, insight and expertise will be put to good use by helping our students learn and grow academically.
Dinner Cooks for Evening Study
Before our Evening Study tutoring sessions, volunteer Dinner Cooks provide students a well-balanced, nutritious meal and enable students and tutors to interact, socialize and get to know each other. Dinner cooks are invited to sign up for any number of available evenings during the school year and no long-term commitment is required.

Be a Big Brother
In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay, Nativity Prep is proud to participate in their School/Site Based Mentoring Program. Volunteers are matched one-to-one with our current students and meet together regularly at the school – typically once a week during lunch or every other Friday during lunch.
Offer an Internship
As part of our long-term commitment to our students, we provide support even after they’ve graduated from Nativity Prep. Our Graduate Support Office has many opportunities for volunteers to engage with, mentor and support our alumni. Some programs are ongoing, while other unique opportunities arise during the year, like providing internship opportunities at your place of employment, hosting a graduate interested in learning more about your career field, and participating in our Career Days.
Sponsor a Student or Class
As a member of Nativity’s Student Sponsorship Program, supporters have the opportunity to witness firsthand the meaningful impact that Nativity Prep has on a student’s life. All students attend Nativity Prep on a full scholarship as a result of the partnership and generosity of Nativity’s benefactors. As a Student Sponsor, you will observe the transformation that a student makes from the time he enters Nativity Prep, until he graduates.
Become or Recommend a Community Sponsor
We look to outside groups and organizations in the community to help us increase our impact through strategic collaborations. Our community partners include businesses, faith-based institutions, colleges, community groups, civic organizations, and other networks that want to make a collective difference. Involvement takes many forms and can be customized to meet the needs of your organization.

"In the Nativity community, our teachers are our instructors, mentors, coaches and friends. They do not give up on us; they always work to help us succeed."Ramsey Martinez, Class of Brebeuf ('18), Dexter Southfield ('22)
"The most important lessons I carry with me from Nativity are not about Pythagoras' theorem, but rather lessons that you would be hard pressed to find at many other schools in the country. Nativity has taught me how firm a handshake should truly be, what it means to be a person for others, what it means to do work you are proud of, and to always put God first, ad maiorem dei gloriam."Quang Dang, Nativity Class of Grande ('11), Roxbury Latin ('15), Dartmouth College ('19)
"Our friends got us interested in Nativity’s model, but it was visiting and seeing the amount of time and effort the boys put into their education and what’s expected of them that inspired us to get involved."Peter and Meredith Murphy, Student Sponsors
"The best argument we can make for supporting Nativity is to visit, to see the work and impact and spend time with the students. The boys are highly respectful and bright. You can really tell that these are formative years for them and can see the results."George and Luanne Nugent, Student Sponsors
