In 2011-2012, we’re improving our community service outreach activities and are co-sponsoring OneSloan Service Day on October 21.
Every year, Sloanies band together and spend one day giving back to the community. Grab a few friends and sign up for a day of fun with organizations like The Esplanade Association (Charles River beautification), Cradles to Crayons (collects and donates school supplies to homeless children), The Greater Boston Food Bank, and Fenway Public High School. Lunch and social to follow back at Sloan.
By partnering with organizations outside MIT, SWIM will organize community service offerings for the SWIM community. SWIM aims to host two community service events per semester.
Community service events are an opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded classmates who are passionate about giving back and creating meaningful impact. Building a community of women at MIT Sloan is an integral part of SWIM’s role. The relationships that develop through community service and informal, social gatherings can last a lifetime and be a source of encouragement and support for women throughout their careers.
SWIM aims to form long-term relationships with local non-profit organizations to craft on-going community service programs. SWIM will organize on-going programs that provide weekly or monthly service opportunities for members through sustainable and repeatable programming.
