About CityDays

CityDays is a series of one-day volunteer opportunities for all members of the MIT community. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to engage with the Cambridge and greater Boston community by devoting a few hours to volunteer with CityDays throughout the year. In conjunction with MIT’s mission, the CityDays campaign aims to work for the “betterment of humankind” by connecting those who are a part of the MIT community with local organizations who need volunteers.

CityDays is a great fit for those who would like to give back and learn about the community, but who may not have time for a long-term volunteer commitment. The Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center handles all of the logistics for the day, including a meal, travel, and service placements. All you have to do is sign up and show up with an ethic for service. Participants may sign up as individuals or as groups. We encourage student groups to utilize CityDays as a pre-planned day of service.

Upcoming CityDays events will be on September 24, 2016, November 5, 2016, January 20, 2017 and a spring date TBD. Check back soon for sign-up information.

Thanks to all of the people that supported CityDays MIT2016 in April as part of MIT's Together in Service Initiative. Check out the MIT News article!
