Here are the service projects with space remaining:


Action for Boston Community Development Citizenship Day: Friday 4/19, 9am - 5pm

--Volunteers will help 50 pre-registered, low income immigrants residents of Boston in completing the paperwork required for applying for US citizenship and fee waivers. The population is overwhelmingly Spanish speaking. This is an exciting and meaningful experience as the volunteers will be providing a direct service with a profound impact to community members. The project will include a 2 hour training on how to compete the forms. No prior experience necessary, but proficiency in Spanish is preferred due to the background of clients. (Off Campus)

Greater Boston Food Bank: Friday 4/19, 1pm - 3:30pm

--Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger by giving their time and talent to support The Greater Boston Food Bank. Last year, more than 14,000 volunteers worked a total of 40,000 hours, a contribution worth more than $800,000. Most volunteers work in our warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and packing food and grocery products. While a few tasks require the ability to lift a 30-pound box, most tasks require the ability to stand and inspect products for 2 - 3 hours. (Off Campus)

Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) - Aquatic Assessment: Saturday 4/20, 9am - 1pm

--Volunteers will help to facilitate aquatics assessment, guided by the coaches and staff from the organization. Specific job scopes include time keeping, refereeing, registration, and coordinating the award ceremony. Special Olympics Massachusetts provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state. Lunch and tee-shirts will be provided by SOMA. (Off Campus: JFK School, 5 Cherry Street, Somerville, MA - about a five minute walk from Porter Square T-Stop)
