In honor of Women's History Month, the Boston 1st Service Platoon has organized a day of service alongside the young women at The Home for Little Wanderers' Somerville Village Program. The innovative program is designed to enable young women who are homeless or at-risk for homelessness to pursue post-secondary education by providing housing, therapeutic, emotional, and educational supports. This service-project will be women-led and focused on supporting women.
We are looking for 15 dynamic women (and men) veterans and community members to come out and volunteer with us for a good cause. We will be on-site cleaning the interior and exterior of the house, building picnic tables for use in the warmer weather, creating new wall decor, and more! Snacks and lunch will be provided. This project is for ages 18+.
What To Wear :
Your TMC shirt, closed-toe shoes, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.
Around the corner from #95 bus stop and 1-mile walk from Wellington Station. There is limited parking along the backside of the property.
Inclement Weather Plan :
Rain or Shine
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
