Mount Holyoke College Annual Meeting with Dosha Pops at Harvard Club
Part of Dosha Pops’ mission is to support charitable organizations that promote healthier lifestyles. We believe education and volunteerism will help promote these goals. Hence, when the Mount Holyoke Club of NY asked Dosha Pops to be a part of their Annual Meeting at the Harvard Club, we were honored to donate our lollipops.
The guest speaker was Alan Bloomgarden, Coordinator of the Community-Based Learning Program at the Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts. The program connects Mount Holyoke College students with local communities through courses, internships and service projects that combine learning and analysis with action and social change. In one of their projects, students helped organize a local organization’s Martin Luther King Food Drive.
Alan Bloomgarden spoke about education for citizenship, leadership and social change. The focus of the speech was on the best practices for incorporating civic responsibility and social action into undergraduate education. The program’s experiential learning ties community service and community-based learning opportunities to citizenship, leadership and change.
The Mount Holyoke College alums enjoyed hearing about the college’s program. At the end of the lecture, the alums were treated to our yummy lollipops. As you can see from the photos, Dosha Pops were a big hit!
