MLK Scholars Friday Forums - Registration Volunteers

MLK Scholars Menino Leadership Forum Registration Volunteers
Boston Cares is pleased to join John Hancock, The Boston Globe, Partners Healthcare, Boston University, and Teen Empowerment to produce the 2019 MLK Scholars Program. The program will provide summer jobs in corporate and community settings for more than 600 Boston teenagers.
As part of the summer experience, youth participants, from neighborhoods throughout the City, are required to attend bi-weekly personal development workshops, called the Mayor Menino Leadership Forums. The Mayor Menino Leadership Forums incorporate the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King in interactive leadership development workshops that focus on youth success on the job, at school and in the community. Scholars will build meaningful relationships with other youth and volunteer table facilitators while learning professional development skills with guest speakers and interactive group activities.

Volunteers are needed to help greet, check-in, update attendance, and distribute materials for the 600 youth Scholars attending the Friday sessions. Volunteers are encouraged, but not required, to make a multi-week commitment. Registration volunteers are not required to stay for the Forum portion of the program.

The Forums will take place on the following dates:
          -July 19th
          -July 26th
          -August 9th
          -August 16th
