The Kennedy Institute served as the service village for the Martin Richard Foundation’s Spring Service Day in May 2019. This event provided an opportunity for families to participate together in a day of service around the theme “creating a better world for young people.”

Participants worked at the Kennedy Institute and at satellite locations across Dorchester to positively affect youth populations in need of extra support. Satellite locations included the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, the Codman Square Branch of the Boston Public Library, and St. Ambrose Family Inn.

The mission of the Martin Richard Foundation – to help young people learn, grow, and lead through volunteerism and community engagement – was brought to life through several service projects managed and executed by young people, for young people.
