Other Things to Do
The Old State House occupies a spot along Boston's Freedom Trail: Two-and-a-half miles dotted with 16 different historical sites. Follow the brick-lined path to other destinations, such as the USS Constitution in the Boston Navy Yard.
In the Boston area, Points of Light Institute will equip and mobilize volunteers with the tools and funding necessary to complete local service projects organized by Boston Cares. Volunteers will work indoors and out, on projects such as creating a chalk mural on City Hall Plaza and preparing library books for Boston Public Schools's libraries. Meanwhile, caring cadets in other parts of the city will transform an urban orchard into an outdoor classroom at Hennigan Elementary School, clear land on an unused railroad for a recreational trail, and pack medical supplies for developing countries.
