Location and Culture:
Student teams at the project center, also referred to as the Worcester Community Project Center, work hand-in-hand with government agencies, local politicians, and Worcester-based organizations on important social and environmental issues in the community. Projects will be developed both from grassroots and the public sector, and through community engagement, students will learn how different decisions affect people of varying incomes, races, ethnicities, and genders.
Past students at the project center have:
- Improved build site operations and volunteer tracking systems at Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester
- Made recommendations to enhance relationships between the Worcester YMCA and newcomer populations
- Worked with State Senator James Eldridge to research components for a new underground storage tank spill cleanup policy in Massachusetts
