Yale’s Dwight Hall program taps students to help meet needs in New Haven

The New Haven Register’s article,  Yale’s Dwight Hall program taps students to help meet needs in New Haven”, published on July 22, 2017, featured the Dwight Hall Summer Fellows program and the work students are accomplishing during their fellowship.

“Dwight Hall basically did an experiment to rethink the way Yale students were doing service to New Haven. Prior to that, the traditional kind of approach was through charity: ‘We have more so we should do more.’”

Now, he said, the attitude is, “We’re coming to you for you to tell us what you need us to do and we’ll roll up our sleeves and do it.”
