FYSOP, the First-Year Student Outreach Project, welcomes first-year and transfer students to Boston University and the Greater Boston area before the fall semester begins. FYSOP engages first-year volunteers and upperclassmen staff leaders through social justice education, service, and reflection.
Volunteers participate in a program orientation, a day of social justice education, and three days of unique service and reflection in a variety of locations around Boston, such as working with children at Mather Elementary or helping clean up a local park in Allston.
Volunteers are assigned to one of seven different groups, each directed by two coordinators. Volunteers are placed into a smaller FYSOP group, consisting of 10-13 first year students and led by three upperclassmen staff leaders.
