1. Help ASC English School give a professional development workshop
Saturday, February 29th
3 pm - 6 pm (can show up at 4:00 pm)
Room 209, Pierce Hall
ASC English is an ESL school in Boston that has worked with international students for 27 years. They noticed many of their students have no idea how to write their resumes or how to prepare for a behavioral interview. As a result, they would like to offer their international students a free resume and interview skill training workshop and are looking for 5 - 10 volunteers help out with this. All materials and tips will be provided - you just need to show up!
The event is split up into two sections: a lecture and workshop. You will help out with the workshop portion. We ask you to show up at 4 pm for a brief orientation, and then help students from 4:30 pm - 6 pm. Refreshments will be provided.
If interested, reach out to Kaela Nelson
2. Help cook dinner at Harvard Square Homeless Shelter
Monday, March 16
Harvard Square Homeless Shelter
We are looking for 4 volunteers to help out with a shift for the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter (HSHS). This falls during Harvard’s spring recess which is a time when the HSHS needs volunteers most since many of its regular volunteers are out of town. SEAS-GC is looking to jump in and help with your support! During this dinner shift, volunteers would prepare and serve dinner to the guests, clean up afterward, and then help the guests with anything they might need.
If you are interested, please contact Jack Killian
