Urban Plunge is a Community Service Center signature program that gives new students the opportunity to work together on community service projects which focus on poverty, young children and the education in Southeastern MA. We will go to three local urban areas, Taunton, Brockton and New Bedford to provide assistance. Transportation and lunch will be provided. We will leave promptly from the Clock Tower on the East Side of campus. Please wear closed toed shoes (no flip-flops or sandals) for all service projects.
Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through life-changing programs and experiences that help girls navigate gender, economic, and social barriers. Research-based curricula, delivered by trained, mentoring professionals in a positive all-girl environment equip girls to achieve academically; lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. The network of local Girls Inc. nonprofit organizations serves 125,000 girls ages 6 - 18 annually across the United States and Canada.
For a child growing up in a poor or low-income family, homelessness, safety, food, health, education, basic essentials, engagement and well-being are more than just words. Gifts to Give connects these kids with what they need. They are about leveraging existing resources and banding together to build a pathway of service, caring and giving for all our children. Volunteers may sort donations and shop for young children in need.
The development of the Old Colony Y Family Life Center (FLC), a supportive transitional housing program for 13 families living in the City of Brockton, is based upon the Old Colony YMCA's belief that the family is the strongest and most capable unit to nurture children and help them become responsible, successful members of our community.
