MLK Day 2019 Volunteer Sign Up
The heart of the decade-long partnership between St. Stephen's Youth Programs (SSYP) and the Blackstone Innovation School is RELATIONSHIPS. Come strengthen the ties and build new ones at our annual MLK Day of Action!

I have read and accept the BPS Volunteer Release of Liability and Indemnity Contract below. *
The Blackstone is requesting donations of HYPOALLERGENIC and FRAGRANCE FREE hygiene supplies such as soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and especially skin lotion.
