The External Relations Committee of HIS is excited to announce a new initiative we have been working on this semester. Insha’Allah, we will be applying to create a service program under the Phillips Brooks House Association for the Muslim communities in North Cambridge/Alewife. As we mentioned in a previous email, there is a significant (and in some cases, working-poor) Muslim community in North Cambridge, most of whom are South Asian and East African immigrant communities. We hope to use the incredible resources we have here to give back to our neighboring Muslim communities. Below are two opportunities for anyone interested in getting involved with this initiative.
The steering committee will work together to determine the best way to structure and develop this mentoring program. Individuals on the steering committee will work intimately with PBHA to gain approval for our program and facilitate relationships with Muslim communities in North Cambridge. Steering committee members will also help in shaping the mission and long-term vision of the joint HIS-PBHA program. The application is open to all interested current undergraduate and graduate students! Fill out this short application by Friday October 23rd if interested!
Community Service Volunteer:
This is for anyone and everyone who is interested in volunteering with this program in the coming months and semesters. Even if you are unsure if you will be able to commit to this program right now, please sign up by Friday October 23rd so we can reach out to you with updates and assess what times work best for everyone in our community.
