III. Television Tactic on Saturday at 7pm

IV. Donate Your Empty Ink Cartridges!

Recycle4Fundraising is collecting used printer and copier cartridges, for which all proceeds will go to the International Rescue Committee, who is working to aid in the refugee crisis during the Trump presidency.  There are UPS labels in the office so that no one will have to pay to participate; as soon as there are six donations, the first wave can be sent off, so the next time you have an empty cartridge, please bring it in to Mary Powers!

V. “Hurricane Matthew: Lasting Devastation” in the Morse Art Gallery

A Yale UNICEF Event

The exhibit will be open through December 1st and will be presented digitally. “Hurricane Matthew: Lasting Devastation” will focus on the permanent impact and growing epidemic facing Haiti, especially its children. The stories of several children, including how they are currently coping and how Matthew impacted their families, will be profiled. With their stories, coupled with their inextinguishable optimism, we hope to further campus dialog about the world’s children and what we can do as students to help them.

VI. Volunteer in Argentina this summer with AIESEC Yale!

Already thinking about the summer? Consider volunteering in Argentina! Sponsored by AIESEC Yale, students will be given the opportunity to travel to a city in Argentina, working closely with locals to help provide necessary services to the community. AIESEC Yale has a long history of providing students with incredible opportunities to act as leaders in critically important areas around the world. We have an alumni network including CEOs, politicians, and the current Secretary-of-State John Kerry. This is an amazing opportunity for members of Morse to develop leadership skills in another country, while also becoming a part of a network of over 250,000 students.

We are focusing on the opportunity in Argentina this year, but there are countless opportunities within AIESEC for students to volunteer in nearly any country around the world. Email andrea.sordiazanella@yale.edudavi.silva@yale.edu or robert.jett@yale.edu for more information, or go to aiesecyale.com/#summer-2017.
