Become Involved
Your part in the FUTURE

Twenty miles lie between Boston and Wayland. Racial and cultural differences may also exist. The FUTURE needs us to make these realities into assets and not into barriers. Participate and support the events and programs listed below.

VOLUNTEER

Become a Family Friend. Students need support to nurture long distance friendships. This program matches Boston and Wayland resident families attending Wayland's elementary and middle schools. Families are encouraged to meet. They are also encouraged to attend special social activities and/or participate at regular school functions together. Transportation is provided for special scheduled play dates.

Become a Boston Council/PTO Liaison. Our two communities are active in planning for the future of our children and schools. We need representatives from the Boston Parent Council and each school's PTO to be in regular contact, reporting at respective meetings whatever is deemed relevant.

Become a part of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Dinner. This dinner and program is focused on the meaning of Dr. King's work. Planning for publicity, programming, dinner menu and workshops needs to start the Fall before the event that occurs the third Friday in January.

Volunteer opportunities are innumerable.

SPONSORSHIP

We need creative and effective programming; to support Wayland students who are Boston residents as they attend school in Wayland, and to realize the dream and vision of the METCO program. But programming takes money. Can you help?
