Get Engaged! - Lehman Council's Community Corps

The Lehman Council for Community Engagement will be organizing a month-long
experiential introduction to the Berkshires, issues of social justice, and
informed activism. Focusing on food security, environmentalism, community
partnership building, NGO work, and an array of other awesome social justice
topics, Community Corps will empower its students to get involved and get
informed, simultaneously, in order to make the biggest impact on the Berkshires
and beyond. "Classes" will include a tour of local nonprofits, a film at
MassMoCA, facilitated discussions on a "Second Bill of Rights," community
partnership training and reflection, Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations,
service trips to local organizations, and time to socialize with your fellow,
budding activists! Community Corps will meet primarily in the evenings, with
some day trips scheduled here and there. If you can't make one class, no
problem; we just hope to see you at the next! Don't be afraid of the
commitment. Rather, Get Engaged!
