ReachOut: Bring your love of reading to a child
Do you like working with children?
ReachOut was created to provide MIT students as reading partners for children in the after school program at Cambridge Community Center.  We will train you to work one-on-one with a young student. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the community, meet other MIT students, and make a difference in a child’s life!  Participate as a volunteer or through Community Service Work-Study.
All new tutors must attend the ReachOut Tutor Orientation:
Friday, September 13

The School of Engineering & Applied Science  will host the Princeton Engineering Graduate Symposium (PEGS) on October 17-19 to encourage underrepresented minority students who are eligible for graduate study to apply to Princeton.  The program is rooted in Princeton’s commitment and desire to attract and train a diverse set of science, engineering, and technology leaders. The three-day visitation program offers undergraduates the opportunity to explore engineering fields at Princeton. The visit includes interacting with faculty and alumni, poster sessions, and seminars about graduate study.  Princeton will provide selected participants with transportation, lodging, and meals.
