Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) is a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the largest public service organization at Harvard, encompassing 86 programs that serve over 10,000 youth and adults in the greater Boston area. PBHA programs emphasize direct service and social action as a facilitator for social change and address several key community needs, including tutoring, small claims advising, advocacy, managing local homeless shelters, ESL education, citizenship training, Alternative Spring Break trips, and the Summer Urban Program (SUP).
The Institute of Politics' (IOP) mission is to unite and engage students, particularly undergraduates, with academics, politicians, activists, and policymakers on a non-partisan basis and to stimulate and nurture their interest in public service and leadership. The Institute strives to promote greater understanding and cooperation between the academic world and the world of politics and public affairs.
NOTE: our 10-24 month post-graduate fellowships are for graduating seniors and recent Harvard College grads. Our summer fellowships are typically 10 week experiences between June and mid-August. Our winter break volunteer opportunities are organized during the first three weeks of January.
