Community Service Clubs
These clubs are co-sponsored by the Center for Community-Based Learning and the Office of Student Activities.
Fashion Service Society:
The purpose of the Fashion & Service Society is to promote community-service/social awareness within the Greater Boston area and the Lasell College community through the medium of fashion. The members meet once a week to discuss different ways to get involved.
They work with the nonprofit Dress for Success. Each year they host a fashion show fundraiser to benefit this organization. They also host Clothing Swaps, a great way to exchange your clothing and benefit charities in the area. They are always looking for new members to join. If interested please contact the club advisor, Trish Moran, the Club Presidents, Jasmine Villanueva, or find them on Facebook.
Hope for Humanity:
This club was formed in the Spring of 2010 by Carolyn Kenniston, '13. Their mission is to support and raise awareness for those in need in our local community and beyond. They plan to volunteer frequently at homeless providers, soup kitchens, and community supply banks. Many opportunities exist to become a leader with this group. For more information, email their advisor, Amy Greene, or find them on Facebook.
Meetings: TBA for Fall 2012
Barry Price Mentoring Program:
This student club was co-created by Katelyn Gormley, '12 and Casey Closter, '13 through their shared interest in supporting young adults with developmental disabilities. Members of the ASCENT Program at the Barry Price Center visit Lasell every other Friday to engage in social and educational group activities with Lasell mentors.
This year, we are excited to announce a new initiative: SVL103X, a complementary course to the mentoring program which will be worth 2-credits and will meet on alternating Fridays in Wolfe Hall. To register, email Casey Closter.
Mentor recruitment will happen at the beginning of each semester, and a semester long commitment is ideal to support the program. For more information, contact their advisor, Sharyn Lowenstein.
