The Harvard Square Homeless Shelter (HSHS) and Y2Y Harvard Square need Tufts students and community members to help provide shelter at a critical time of the year for individuals experiencing homelessness in the local community. Volunteers are needed for breakfast, dinner, evening, and overnight shifts. Our shelters offer opportunities for students to develop understanding of the greater issues surrounding homelessness and gain leadership experience! Start your volunteer journey by applying for a regular weekly shift, a break shift, or one time substitute shifts; both individuals and groups are welcome. Contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
Generation Vote is a new student-driven nonpartisan organization whose mission is to educate, mobilize and connect young people to be agents of change in local electoral and advocacy campaigns. To accomplish their mission they developed a model of engagement in which students start a team on their campus, use surveys to develop platforms that reflect the interests of local young people and drive turnout based on their ideas. Throughout the process, they train young people with our unique curriculum and offer them mentorship from their team of experienced activists and advisors.
