Wellesley Community Engagement Support for Service Organizations
As leaders of service organizations with large volumes of Wellesley counselors, we desperately need support from Wellesley's administration to make sure that our counselors have the option to volunteer with Federal Work Study and have a practical and sustainable method of transportation to get to our programs on time. As of now, with CWS's total overhaul, we have absolutely zero support coming from Community Engagement. We have one interim staff member to answer our questions and make sure our needs are met, but this is not enough especially when Career Education was remodeled to have over 20 staff members. Please read the email we have written to our contacts at Community Engagement and Career Education for our full list of demands, which are College Van access, time sheets, and EZ passes. We work hard every day to make sure that we are servicing the needs of our counselors and the neighboring communities. It should not be a financial burden to want to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
