Volunteer with our partners at Future Chefs!

Food is My First Language (FIMFL) is a group mentoring dinner series that creates 'unlikely allies' between young adults and the professional community through a hands on dinner making series. Facilitating connection that crosses the cultural boundaries of age, ethnicity, class, and ability is an important opportunity for teens that increases the confidence and social skills needed in adulthood. 

Reasons why FIMFL matters: older teens will be able to increase their comfort around adults, connecting adults and teens helps dispel stereotypes that adult professionals may have about urban teens, creating unlikely allies who understand that teens are community assets, not community burdens, and because cooking with company is fun! 

Do you want to help a young adult build their first professional network of support? Join Future Chefs for their dinner series! To participate volunteers must pass CORI check and complete brief youth work training and be committed to participate in four group mentoring dinners. Contact Will Barclay at volunteer@futurechefs.net for more information.

Spring is usually a quiet time in Franklin Park. The Park is still a few weeks away from the leaves, birds, golfers, and festival goers attending the park's great activities. It is a special time to take a look at Franklin Park in a different way. The way designer Frederick Law Olmsted saw it. Observe features that are hard to see when the park is fully leafed out. Join the National Olmsted Historic Site for a 90 minute stroll to celebrate spring's arrival in Boston. 

This event will take place on Sunday, March 23 from 2-3:30 pm at Franklin Park Shattuck Picnic Grove located at the intersection of Forest Hills Drive and Jewish War Veterans Memorial Highway in Boston. Advanced reservations are required, to do so, email Ranger Mark Swartz at Mark_Swartz@nps.gov by Thursday, March 20th. Leave your name, phone number, number of people within your party, and any additional contact information.
