Location: Science Center Plaza Tent

Don't miss the First-Year Day of Service and the opportunity to demonstrate that the Class of 2020 cares about the public good! To register, click on this link. The day will begin with an orientation with Dean Khurana at 10 a.m. at which you will be welcomed to Cambridge and Boston by community leaders. You will then participate in public service projects with community organizations in the greater Boston area that will allow you to learn about and contribute to the community in which Harvard is embedded. Service projects will not require any prior knowledge or skill and will include landscaping, light construction, shelving canned food, sorting school supplies for children, etc. Lunch will be provided for your service team, and you will be back on campus by 5 p.m.

The Class of 2020 Day of Service is open to all first-year students! When registering, please make sure to note if you need accommodations for religious reasons (e.g., you observe the Sabbath) and/or have accessibility needs.*
