An important and fun aspect of being an MSPP student is that there are many opportunities to do volunteer work during the school year. An e-mail was sent out last week asking for volunteers to work at Cradles to Crayons today. Cradles to Crayons (C2C) is an “innovative Quincy-based nonprofit organization that equips homeless and in-need children with the basic essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued. While meeting the immediate needs of low-income children, C2C also sets a foundation for lasting change by providing meaningful, tangible volunteer opportunities to thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations each year.” Unfortunately, I had to work at my internship all day, but I would have loved to do this volunteer opportunity!
If you’re a person who loves to volunteer and make a difference in the community, than maybe MSPP is the school for you! Check out some of the other community service projects, such as The Food Project and MSPP CARE. Another bonus is that if there is an organization or population that you are passionate about, you can bring these ideas to the community service meetings and propose a project or volunteer opportunity!
