Spring 2016 GSOM Day of Service
Saturday April 23, 2016 10:00am - 3:00pm
For the fifth year, the Boston College Carroll School of Management Graduate Programs will partner with the West End House Boys and Girls Club for an afternoon of giving back to the community.
West End House Boys and Girls Club: Located in Allston, WEH is an independent Boys and Girls Club in the City of Boston that has been transforming the lives of immigrant and urban youth since its founding in 1906. With 75% of WEH families earning less than $25,000 per year and 70% of the young people served coming from single parent households, the WEH is truly reaching the children and teens most in need. The West End House offers its 1,500 members an integrated array of programs across four broad areas: leadership and life skills; academic support and college preparation; sports, fitness and nutrition; and visual and performing arts. In support of these programs, the WEH also serves over 1,200 healthful hot meals to members every week.
What will GSOM students be doing to support WEH?
Boston College's Carroll School of Management volunteers will assist with various projects to help improve the conditions of the Club in anticipation of their annual fundraiser. Activities could include: painting, mopping, room organization and landscaping.
