Canisius Students at BPS Saturday Academies

More than 55 Canisius University students volunteered at 13 Saturday Academies this semester. Saturday Academies provide educational, recreational, cultural, social and wellness programs for the entire family at Buffalo Public Schools Community Schools.  The events are supported through a partnership between Say Yes Buffalo and Buffalo Public Schools.  They are free and open to everyone. 


Students were warmly welcomed at six different Community Schools including Hamlin Park, East High School, and Burgard High School.  You could find students interacting with youth in the gym while playing basketball and JENGA, as friendly faces during registration, working in the clothing & food support rooms, helping with seasonal crafts, making slime, and so much more!  Students participated as a service learning opportunity through a variety of education courses.
