First-Year Student Outreach Project (FYSOP)

FYSOP 2017

Mission Statement: The First Year Student Outreach Project is a program through the Community Service Center that welcomes and empowers new students to Boston University. Participants will explore the triumphs and challenges of our neighboring communities, and have the opportunity to connect with peers, local organizations, and the city of Boston. FYSOP encourages students to discover and celebrate our unique roles as active citizens.

Program Dates: FYSOP 2017 will run from Monday, August 28 through Friday, September 1, 2017.

Staff Leaders: We are currently building our team of FYSOP Staff Leaders to help us make FYSOP 2017 a transformative, meaningful experience for first-year students. FYSOP Staff Leaders are integral to the success of FYSOP as they help welcome first-years by serving as peer leaders through education, service, and group reflections. Applications are due by Thursday, March 23rd, APPLY NOW.
