Volunteer. Donate. You make the difference!

Boost programming is designed to address seemingly intractable problems in education and society. There are no quick fixes, and to get the success rates we have seen in the past 34 years with students from under resourced schools and communities, there are no short cuts. All Boost programming is high-touch and high-impact.

As an independent center at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, Boost is not state supported and is responsible for raising 100% of its funding, primarily through contributed income from individuals, foundations and corporations.

Here is how you can make a difference for a disadvantaged youth

  • Contribute crucial financial support
  • Serve as a volunteer mentor in the high school program
  • Judge student case studies and business plan competitions
  • Create an internship opportunity in your business
  • Volunteer for special projects including marketing, development or events
