Wheelock World Service Weekend
The one thing that makes life worth living is to serve a cause."
- Lucy Wheelock
April 11-13, 2014
Wheelock World Service Weekend aims to unite students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the College in a weekend of service to their communities. By coming together to perform volunteer activities in different parts of the country and the world, on one weekend, Wheelock community members will make a powerful collective statement about the College's commitment to service. Wheelock World Service Weekend will strengthen our ties to each other while contributing to our mission to improve the lives of children and families. We need your help to make Wheelock World Service Weekend a success! Please help us inspire a world of good!
There are many ways for you to get involved in the 2014 Wheelock World Service Weekend. You can become a team leader by proposing a service project in your area and encouraging others to participate. You can join one of the existing projects. Or, you can do your own service project and report back to us! We estimate that close to 200 Wheelock alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends participated in the 2013 Wheelock World Service Weekend, despite the fact that many of the Boston projects did not take place because of the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Even in the midst of that tragedy, the Wheelock community, like the Boston community, stayed strong and stuck together. We hope that the 2014 WWSW will demonstrate our unwavering commitment to service and our resiliency as a community. Please join us!
We're asking participants to count the hours they served during Wheelock's World Service Weekend so we can measure the overall impact of this important event. Click the link above and make sure your hours count! If you participated in one of the highlighted projects or one of your own, let us know! Every act of kindness counts! We would also love to hear how you are serving your community during other times of the year. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any news or photos.
