Giving Back
At BVT, we encourage our students to get involved and give back to their community and their school. Each year, numerous charitable activities and events are organized by student groups, clubs, and teams.
 
In addition to helping others, community service serves Valley Tech's mission of providing students the skills they need to succeed in the modern workforce. Over 400 members of BVT's General Advisory Committee report that when choosing from a pool of equally qualified applicants, they favor candidates whose resumes demonstrate a commitment to community.

Dig Pink Dig Pink: Raises Funds for Breast Cancer Awareness
Under the guidance of long-time coach Barbara King, the BVT volleyball program has annually raised thousands of dollars to benefit the Side-Out Foundation's mission of raising breast cancer awareness through athletics. 
 
Through various events and collaborations with students from both BVT and area schools, the 2014 fundraising total of $8,532 was the largest amount raised in Valley Tech's history, the largest amount raised this year in Massachusetts, and among the highest totals in the nation. BVT was recognized with the Side-Out Foundation's "Hard Hitting Award."

Treats 4 Our Troops Treats 4 Our Troops: Make A Delicious Donation
In a pretty sweet mashup of Halloween and Veterans Day, students and staff at Blackstone Valley Tech recently participated for the first time in the "Treats 4 Our Troops" program. Multimedia Communications junior Andrea Matellian, an Upton resident and member of the SBHC student advisory committee, was credited with spearheading the candy drive, which raised a total of 155 pounds of leftover Halloween candy between November 3 and November 12. The candy was then shipped to members of the U.S. military stationed overseas.
