We’re very excited to be a participating in Boston University’s 2012 First-Year Student Outreach Project (FYSOP)!
Boston University’s FYSOP program offers incoming Boston University students the opportunity to get settled in their new community by performing a week of service before classes begin. The students participate in a program orientation, a full day of education, and spend three full days volunteering for local nonprofits. We were selected to host a large group of Boston University students across three days in August. Each day we will spend 7 hours with a group of students who will learn about our mission, and help us with projects and tasks.
We hope to teach these students about the prevalence of mental health conditions, the stigma that stops so many people from seeking treatment, and how to recognize when someone they care about needs help.
FYSOP is a unique opportunity for us to educate and impact 45 young adults. We’re thrilled to be given this opportunity - check back in September to see what they got up to!
