Grads Give Back
A Graduate and Professional Student Weekend of Service
April 12th, 2014
Thank you to the more than 80 students who registered for Grads Give Back 2013! Check out the Graduate Student Life Facebook page to view pictures from each of our 5 service sites. We are excited to announce that Grads Give Back 2014 will take place on Saturday, April 12th. More details and registration information will be released in the Spring 2014 semester.
Grads Give Back is an annual event, co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life, Graduate Student Association (GSA), and Law Student Association (LSA), which aims to engage BC graduate and professional students in our local community.
Do I need to volunteer for the entire weekend? No, you can volunteer for as much or as little of the weekend as you'd like! You can see in our chart of placement sites below that we offer volunteer opportunities at various times throughout the weekend. On the registration form you will have the opportunity to rank your preferred placement sites, and you may do so based on what works best with your own schedule that weekend!
Do I need to have a car in order to get to sites? No you don't! As long as you can get to the Murray Graduate Student Center, we will help you get transportation to your placement site. The larger sites will have a bus or van provided, but for some we will ask students who have cars to volunteer to drive. If you yourself have a car and are willing to drive others, please indicate that on your registration form.
Will I know in advance what site I've been assigned to? Yes, we will send you an email in advance of the weekend letting you know where you are assigned.
Can I attend with a group? If you are the leader of a student organization and would like your members to be assigned to a specific site, please contact an event chair via GradsGiveBack.BC@gmail.com in order to make arrangements. If you are not the leader of a specific group but would like to attend the event with friends, make sure your friends rate the same sites as preferences on their registration forms! We will do our absolute best to assign volunteers to their preferred site.
Do you work with any organizations in Boston who could use volunteers during Grads Give Back 2014 next year?
