Welcome to the Yale Club of Houston - Yale Day of Service

Yale Day of Service

Campus Beautification at Klentzman Intermediate School
Marsh Mania with the Galveston Bay Foundation
Saturday, May 14, 2011

Our third annual Yale Day of Service falls on Saturday, May 14 2011.  As inspiration, take a look at this year's YDOS video by Austin Kase '11:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vkhw-1EF04

Last year, over 60 Houston-area Yale alumni, parents, family members, and Yes Prep students made a lasting impact on the Yes Prep North Central Campus.  This year, we'll come together to tackle two projects:

Campus Beautification at Klentzman Intermediate School

9 am - 1 pm, 11100 Stancliff, Houston, TX 77099 

Led by Klentzman teacher Omar Rouchon '07, we'll spend a few hours side-by-side with Klentzman middle school students, planting flower beds and engaging in a campus cleanup.  We'll then join the students and their parents for lunch, sharing our college experiences and giving a brief introductory presentation about the college application process.  Don't miss this chance to brighten up the school environment and encourage the next generation of college students!



Marsh Mania with the Galveston Bay Foundation

8:30 am - 1 pm, Scenic Galveston Virginia Point Peninsula Preserve

Under the guidance of Galveston Bay Foundation President Bob Stokes '90, we'll head to the shore for "Marsh Mania!"  We'll plant marsh grasses and then enjoy lunch together.  Come enjoy hands-on wetlands restoration activities while increasing your family's awareness and appreciation of wetland habitats and functions. 

From Houston, take I-45 South
Take Exit 5
Feeder makes a U-turn under I-45 at Railroad crossing
Immediately thereafter, turn RIGHT on a small un-maintained road
Go to end of road, crossing railroad tracks
Road will run to left side of parking lot curving to the left under the railroad bridge.
Follow under the bridge and go through the gate on the other side. Parking will be inside the gate along that road.
