Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

Over the past several months, Risha De Leon (D16) has been spending time with the children at ABCD Chinese Church Head Start and Brighton-Allston Head Start. While there, she has helped the kids make better meal choices, taught them the proper brushing techniques, and provided plenty of toothpaste and tooth brushes. Risha had this to say about her experience:

“I learned about community service that it entails a lot of immersion and relationship building rather than planning. Needs assessment is key for a successful program. You also have to learn to listen to the administration to be able to develop your program well. I learned about program development and implementation and the importance of community partnership.”
