SERVICE TO COMMUNITY Building on-site work in the sophomore year, juniors continue volunteering at nonprofits around western Massachusetts. As we develop career interests, we also assume more responsibility and take more initiative at our sites.
As our appreciation and understanding of nonprofit structures grow, we create our own mock nonprofit—applying not only what we’ve learned about the world’s needs, but also how to start addressing those needs. In the second half of the year, we develop professional application materials that we use to apply for senior-year internships— and to bolster our college applications.

They encourage young writers far and wide to submit their work for consideration for publication in this annually published online journal. As expressed on their website, "We believe in the power of young women, sisterhood, and creativity through writing."
