SOM Serves is a week-long, student-led, volunteering extravaganza where over 600 Yale School of Management students, staff, faculty, and alumni will work with, in, and around the New Haven community. Composed of over 50 individual events, SOM Serves provides opportunities to assist community service organizations with management and organizational challenges of all shapes and sizes. The week will also include more traditional volunteering events, like clean-up, beautification, and clothing drives, so there are plenty of ways for anyone interested to get involved. Sign up to volunteer in an event, assemble a literacy kit in front of Ross Library, or donate food, clothing, and goods.
