GOLD (4)

GOLD is a free, weekly evening program on a mission to cultivate self-love, self-expression, and leadership skills for middle and high school Cambridge youth and local volunteers through mentorship and community partnerships. 

Starting May 17th through the end of July, we will meet weekly to plan next year's GOLD program. This is a paid opportunity. Open to 7th through 12th grade youth.

Ackermann

Want to make sure there’s representation in our City Hall? Right now, there are 13 portraits in a room named after the first woman Mayor of Cambridge, Barbara Ackermann: 12 are of white men. Join us this summer to help decide who should be honored at City Hall. The City is our studio and where our design team will learn, imagine, and create together. Come join us!

Hi there! I am a Youth Mentor!

I volunteer with GOLD because it allows me to be part of a community within Cambridge that I choose and truly feel connected with.  The participants inspire me to be a better individual and community member each week.  I am honored to be part of such an amazing program!
