[Cambridge, Mass]. Cambridge School Volunteers, a fifty-year-old nonprofit partner of the city’s public schools, is orchestrating a Teenage Time Warp in Kendall Square on Friday, September 16, 2016.
The organization, founded in 1966 by parents, now musters roughly one thousand volunteers every year to deploy across all public schools.
Teenage Time Warp will give the public a view of the lives of Cambridge teenagers from the past but will also display artifacts, music, and reading material that represent a typical class of 2017 senior, says Jennifer Fries, the organization’s executive director. The event includes opportunities to discuss the many volunteer opportunities CSV offers throughout all grade levels and academic subjects.
“We are looking to meet potential volunteers from the
Cambridge community who could help a student at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. Volunteers can step into roles as one-to-one after-school tutors, as Science Olympiad advisors, and as mentors to young people who are grappling with the college application process. That process especially can be daunting if you are the first person in your family to apply to college.”—Jennifer Fries, CSV Executive Director
Students past and present at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CR
LS) and its predecessors are the focus of Teenage Time Warp. The Time Warp is a pop-up “parklet” that will occur during the city’s celebration of International Park(ing) Day, with some ninety organizations occupying metered parking spaces in the city from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on September 16th. More information and and interactive map of all Cambridge Park(ing) Day spots is here.
