Person-to-Person: Lasell Contributes with Community Volunteers
Community service is a way of life at Lasell College. Fifty-seven percent of the student body participated in some form of course-based service in the past year. An additional group of students provided service through student clubs and the Athletic department. While many offices and departments actively promote and facilitate service, The Center for Community Based Learning (CCBL) is specifically charged with the mission of community engagement and, with community partners, co-creates either major projects or one-time service opportunities. During the most recent academic year, in the Newton Public Schools alone, Lasell tutors provided 6,854 hours of service, with 73 tutors in the fall and 63 tutors in the spring.
In addition to these significant partnerships with area community organizations, Lasell students also participated in several one-time community service events for a total of 1,701 hours involving 547 student attendees over the last academic year.
|Community service events include: America Reads, America Counts, Cradles to Crayons, Charles River Clean-Up, Lasell Cooks, Bone Marrow Drive, Newton Literacy Program, and more.|
