Jonathan Kaplan speaks about Global Days of Service.Celebrate Global Days of Service and be a part of social change in your community

Every step forward begins with an idea. Members of the Walden community know each idea and action can make a positive impact. During October’s Global Days of Service, Walden faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as their friends and family, participated in community service projects around the world that included:

  • Remodeling a computer lab, refreshing paint in classrooms and bathrooms and installing wireless internet at Bay Brook Intermediate School in Baltimore.
  • Cooking for parents and families of sick children at the Ronald McDonald House in Amsterdam.
  • Hosting an event for abandoned children in Gdansk, Poland.
  • Created activity kits for People Serving People.
  • Worked with Habitat for Humanity to finish a house-building project including work on flooring, painting, hardware installation, and trim.
  • Stuffed microchip bags at the Animal Care and Control.
  • Beautification of Residential Treatment Children’s Shelter.
  • Prepared packets of school supplies to hand out to students and teachers.

As part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Walden also helped clean and organize, assemble furniture, created welcome and hygiene kits as well as gardening at the Tubman Family Crisis Center in Maplewood, Minnesota. Tubman plays a vital role in the community by offering safety, hope, and healing to more than 25,000 people of all ages who are facing violence, exploitation, homelessness, addiction or mental health challenges, and other forms of trauma.
