We’re 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 furthers our mission by creating opportunities for students to be immersed in value-based learning. Giving back provides our students with additional soft-skills such as humility, integrity, and collaboration that will help them succeed in both their personal and professional lives.
Join Us in the Walk
to End Pancreatic Cancer
Our students and staff honor our longtime HVAC&R instructor and football coach Derek Yancik each year by participating in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleStride Walk to End Pancreatic Cancer. This year our team, Yancik Strong, continues to Wage Hope on Sunday, November 3rd at 11:00 a.m. on the Boston Commons.

Sporty’s Closet: A Goodwill-Style Center for Students
In 2014, the Student Council created “Sporty’s Closet,” an easily and privately accessible Goodwill-style center for students, faculty, and staff in need on our campus. Sporty’s Closet is setup to look like a true closet with hangers, drawers, hooks, and shoe racks for students to browse. Students can select gently worn clothing, shoes, and outerwear in addition to hygiene products and formal or semi-formal apparel for events like prom and homecoming. Sporty’s Closet is made possible by donations from students, faculty, staff, and community members.
If you would like to donate to Sporty’s Closet, please contact Megan Potenti at 508–529–7758 x2503 or Danielle Cann at 508–529–7758 x2521.
