CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard men's volleyball team visited the Boys and Girls Club of Cambridge in their off-season in an effort to reach out to the local community. Players helped young children with homework, tutoring them for over an hour. Team members then proceeded to instruct the rules and specific skills of volleyball, followed by playing a few games.
"Helping out at the Boys and Girls Club was a great opportunity to get out of the Harvard bubble and to gain a better understanding of the needs of the community that surrounds us here,” said freshman Rob Lothman. “Working with the kids at the Boys and Girls Club was not only a very fun experience, but also one that taught me about the direct influence that Harvard students can have by serving those within the Cambridge community. The kids we worked with were a blast, and I think that I can speak for the team as a whole when I say that it was a great experience, one which I hope to repeat again in the future."
Harvard heads to New Jersey this weekend to take on Stevens Institute Friday and NJIT Saturday.
