The Community Engagement Programs and Partnerships (CEPP) office continued its work over the summer: hosting a long-awaited Special Olympics Track and Field competition; facilitating tutoring placements with local school-aged children; transferring 44 cartons of books to More Than Words in Boston; and shipping clothing and PPE donations to Haiti.

“Opportunities for connection, compassion, and hands-on learning together continue to be essential for our students and our partner communities,” said Andrea Geyling-Moore, faculty director of CEPP.

CEPP’s 2021–2022 school year will begin with an in-person and online sign-up process as soon as classes are underway. More than 20 regular partners are eager to stay connected through tutoring, multigenerational activities, the arts and athletics, events to raise funds and awareness, and more.

Student leaders on the Community Engagement Board look forward to furthering CEPP’s mission of building an anti-racist community within the campus and beyond. Partner organizations include the Boston Public Schools, Urban Farming Institute, Hebrew Senior Life, Milton Residences for the Elderly, Immigrant Family Services International, and Milton’s own Lower School. Updates will be communicated to students via email, on Instagram @ma_communityengagement, and on the Milton Connect app.

As we receive more information about community partner needs, we appreciate parent volunteers who may be able to help transport our students to local sites.
