BU Volunteers Learn About Waste Management, Recycling and Compost
As part of Save That Stuff’s community involvement, we are always finding new ways to spread awareness about recycling and community activism. This year one of our newest staff members, Matt Messer, coordinated an education and volunteering day at our warehouse.
The students were part of BU’s FYSOP (First Year Student Outreach Program). FYSOP offers incoming Boston University students a unique opportunity to get settled in their new community by performing a week of service before classes begin. Volunteers participate in a program orientation, a full day of education, and three full days of direct service in one of eleven issue areas.
The goal of FYSOP is to orient freshman and transfer students to Boston University, the Boston area, and surrounding community, while educating about and encouraging volunteers to engage in community service.
As a graduate of FYSOP myself, it was a surreal experience to have FYSOPers at the the company I’m working for- as opposed to being on the other side volunteering.
