Malden residents, the Sasaki Foundation is studying the challenges to mobility and transportation in gateway cities like Malden. They need help in gathering information and invite Malden to participate in facilitated conversations and complete a survey that will add to the research about mobility equity.
From student to intern to staff, Masio, current Volunteer and Intern Coordinator at MATV/UMA reflects on the journey to this role and how he approaches it. “It’s all about being empathetic, Understanding what people want and what their expectations are in trying to fulfill that. Having had interned and worked at places where the culture was anything but inclusive and warm, I want to make the intern volunteer experience very inviting and open. I want everyone to feel validated and allow them to grow into whatever they see themselves being. I see myself as Master Yoda and the interns as my full of promise padawans.”
An intimate evening of “Where I’m From” poetry by local community members.

Its a time we are all grappling with. And for educators, parents, and students there are challenges. But with challenges come opportunities. What can happen when we invite students into the conversation about solving problems or making things better.
After this conversation, Eli and Hudson met with the Mayor Gary Christenson of Malden to ask things like where the city gets energy? How is the crime rate? How is city dealing with systemic racism? They also shared their thoughts about school and what could make it better as well as ideas for what might help the community be more connected.
