Harvard Serves

During April, the University community—in Greater Boston and around the globe alike—are invited to participate in the Harvard Alumni Association’s public service initiative, “Harvard Serves.” Inspired by President Drew Faust’s exhortation to apply “our knowledge to help advance the well-being of people in the world beyond our walls,” the HAA hopes to mobilize all 300,000 alumni worldwide, and the extended Harvard family, to volunteer our time and efforts in our own communities.

Events will be organized through local Harvard Clubs, Shared Interest Groups (SIGs), and individual classes; organizers will choose one or more dates during the month of April for their service opportunity. If you would like to get involved, e-mail harvardserves@post.harvard.edu. A full list of service opportunities and specific dates of projects in your area will be available at http://alumni.harvard.edu on March 1.
