Prom may or may not have been the best night of your life, but for many seniors (senior citizens that is), a dance where you get dressed up and spend time with friends is the most fun they will have all year.
On April 17th, Joining Hands, a program through the CSC that volunteers with the elderly and people with disabilities, will host a “Senior Prom.” The prom is an event for all the adults and elders Joining Hands works with during the year, and we need YOU to help make it the best it’s ever been.
So there’s these two really cool programs that help keep theatre and arts alive in schools through the CSC…
And these programs need more volunteers!
Which is where you come in.
We know everyone’s schedule is a little crazy, but volunteering at one of these programs is a SMALL time commitment and can make a HUGE difference.
Children’s Theatre is a program that goes into schools, shelters and community centers and performs skits for children. You don’t have to have any acting experience at all– in fact about 99% of Children’s Theatre volunteers have never acted before.
Apply today. A child will thank you later.

This Thursday is a CSC favorite: The Children’s Theatre Dress Rehearsal!
Children’s Theatre is a program in which students brainstorm, write and produce skits for children at shelters, hospitals and community centers. Students, arranged in troupes, have been working hard all year on their plays. During the dress rehearsal put on for BU students, CT usually puts a fun spin on their plays adapting the plays for more mature audiences. Get ready to laugh and have a food time! Best part: It’s free!
…AND the Volunteer of the Week is…
Ky’s work as a Siblings Peer Leader this year has been extremely invaluable. She has done a great job of engaging her peer group. Her assistance during the Halloween Party this past Saturday was extremely helpful. After spending the day with her Sibling, Ky returned to the party to help with clean-up. As many of our volunteers had to leave, the clean-up was very short-staffed. Ky helped with extremely difficult tasks with a smile on her face. She went out into the rain and mud to clean up the pumpkin painting area. She then helped to carry supplies back to the CSC and even then stayed to clean off the dirty paintbrushes. Ky was so willing and happy to help when one of the PMs needed her. Ky is such a great asset to the Siblings Peer Leader team!
