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.
Our Communities Are Essential
Giving back, BVT partners with vocational-technical schools across the Commonwealth donating over 13,000 masks, 140,000 gloves, and other valuable supplies to support first responders and medical professionals fighting on the front lines of the pandemic.
Dine Out & Do Good: SkillsUSA Charity Dinner
Each year, students from our SkillsUSA Chapter and Culinary Arts program organize a series of fundraising dinners to benefit charitable organizations and causes. Each all-you-can-eat dinner is held on a Thursday evening (except for the November dinner) inside the Three Seasons Restaurant and consists of a themed buffet, dessert, and beverage.
Dine and unwind with a great cause in mind. Please join us for one or more of these delicious dinners:

Proceeds will benefit the Be Like Brit Foundation and the BVT SkillsUSA Chapter.

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.
