President’s Public Service Fellowship
The President’s Public Service Fellowship was established in 1994 to provide expanded opportunities for Yale students to work on behalf of economic development, human development, and neighborhood revitalization with public sector and nonprofit organizations in the City of New Haven.
Since 1994, the Fellowship has grown from 20 Yale students working full-time for eight weeks during the summer to 32 Fellows in the summer of 2015 working for up to eleven weeks at 30 different organizations. The placement possibilities for the summer of 2016 will feature exciting new projects.
The President’s Public Service Fellowship has built a strong reputation with organizations in New Haven, and has created a legacy of current Yale students and recent graduates who have a sophisticated view of community development and remain active in community building in New Haven and in other cities.
More than 700 Yale University undergraduate, graduate and professional students have contributed more than 200,000 hours of community service to New Haven nonprofit and public sector agencies as President’s Public Service Fellows since 1994.

Girls' Science Investigations
The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) is to motivate empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. University students and professors act as mentors and provide a context for exploring and understanding the various disciplines of science through hands-on activities in a laboratory environment. Through student scientific-engagement and parental awareness, GSI strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.
Girls’ Science Investigations is limited to 6th to 8th grade girls. Pathways students receive priority, but any middle school girl can join! Lunch and snacks are included.
East Rock Record Journalism Program
On Thursday afternoons, students in grades 3 through 8 at East Rock School meet to work on their school newspaper as part of the New Haven Student Journalism Project. The project helps students learn about the craft and power of journalism by producing a real newspaper, which gets distributed to students and families at the school and throughout the city of New Haven. With the support of Yale undergraduate and high school mentors, students investigate and report on some of the most important stories of the day. Reporters have written about gun violence, the economy, school uniform policies, a proposed sugar tax, the use of social media in schools, and cyber crime. For each issue, student reporters hold “press conferences” with prominent New Haven figures, including Mayor Toni Harp and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patricia Ferrick.
