Now that it is September, it’s time for a new school year and another cycle of CommuniCare! CommuniCare groups are busy getting up and running, and grantmakers have been doing a fantastic job of spreading the word about the program to get their peers involved.

Meanwhile, CommuniCare staff is delighted to return to schools to visit groups and get students excited about their role as grantmakers. During these introductory visits, students have been showing a great amount of engagement and concern for their communities. We can’t wait to hear which service area each group will choose and to read their mission statements, which will be available to view on our website starting November 15th.

We have a lot of exciting things in store for the year ahead. CommuniCare continues to grow within and across schools, we are adding a new team member, and we’re planning for the return of our Arts Experiences. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to keep up on everything related to CommuniCare!
