Working for Worcester

Working for Worcester is a student inspired and organized 501(c)3 social initiative that brings together college students, local businesses, non-profits, neighborhood groups, community and faith-based organizations, government agencies, and major corporations to promote stronger community wellness through creating recreation infrastructure and facilities at Worcester’s schools, parks, community centers, sports fields, and other valuable family and youth oriented spaces. April 12, 2014 marked the 2nd year that hundreds of local volunteers came together to work on 20 community projects throughout Worcester. The projects ranged from turning a storage cellar into a multipurpose fitness and dance studio from scratch, building playgrounds and renovating classrooms in the Worcester Public Schools. Worcester YouthBuild is proud to have helped make 2014 Working for Worcester a very successful event!

Worcester YouthBuild students joined forces with the Worcester Public Schools (WPS) Transition Program and volunteers from Holy Cross College, Clark University, and YBUSA to renovate two Transition Program classrooms at the WPS Fanning Building. The Worcester Public Schools Transition Program helps students between the ages of 18 and 22 prepare for real world success. Two of their students are currently enrolled in the Worcester YouthBuild Program, and both are on pace to graduate next fall. Because of their success in Worcester YouthBuild, TRA and the Transition Program have built a great relationship that helped lead us to volunteering this year for the Working For Worcester campaign.
