School Volunteers To Celebrate CSV Now!

csv_logo.gifCambridge School Volunteers (CSV) will be celebrating its commitment to the academic success of Cambridge Public School students at a special event, CSV Now! on Thursday, March 15, 2012, from 6 - 8PM at Genzyme, a Sanofi Company, 500 Kendall Street, in Cambridge.

Since 1966, CSV has played a pivotal role in its mission, with more than 25,000 volunteers participating in a variety of elementary and high school programs, and logging in more than 1.5 million hours of volunteer time during its 46-year history. It is estimated that close to 70 percent of all public school students have been impacted by a CSV volunteer.

CSV’s event will honor its special KeyPal program partners: Draper Laboratory, IBM and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For the past eighteen years, this remarkable program has matched fifth and sixth graders from the Kennedy-Longfellow School with employees from Draper, MIT, and IBM for a year-long exchange of e-mails focusing on e-mentoring, technology, writing and awareness of career options. Students and mentors meet face-to-face four times during the school year as well, both at the school and the workplace.

CSV will also be featuring Amy Domini, CEO and founder of Domini Social Investments. Since the 1980’s, Domini has advocated the principle of socially responsible investing. The idea is now widely recognized as helping to achieve certain financial and social goals, not the least of which is community investing.

The program will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction. The CRLS Jazz Ensemble will provide music. Monies raised will enable CSV to continue its many successful programs as well as develop new ones. For more information on attending the March 15 event, contact CSV at 617.349.6794 or order tickets online.
