Public Service

Welcome to Dudley Public Service! If you would like to get involved in the greater Cambridge/Boston community (and beyond), you've come to the right place!

We are here to connect GSAS students and other Dudley House members with local organizations working for wonderful causes such as elderly service, prisoners’ rights and criminal justice, LGBTQ rights, immigration, public health, and many more. Get involved in public service with us at homeless shelters, food pantries, the walk for fighting breast cancer, Charles River Cleanup, only to list a few!

Also, you can always reach out to us when you have any ideas and questions about public service opportunities through Dudley. Our doors are open to you.
