Leadership & Community Service Opportunities

President Leary and Bay Path students work on a community service project together

Students Leading Students

At Bay Path, leadership is defined as reaching your potential…taking command of your life…learning to be an active and have a voice. 

Honors students take part in a variety of leadership building opportunities including: 

Honors Council. Elected by fellow students, the Council plans yearly trips, social activities, community projects, as well as the dinner for graduating honors program seniors. 

Harvard Model United Nations. Working as a team, Bay Path students attend the prestigious Harvard Model UN which draws participants from around the world to engage first-hand in diplomacy, debate, and exploration of current global topics. 

Honors Symposium. Held in the spring, this event showcases senior theses and special projects, and is the first step in the final presentation—the final Honors Piece. 

Service in the Community

Out-of-class activities with the larger community teaches civic responsibility and citizenship—making honors students aware of the impact they can have on individuals and the world around them. 

Here’s a sampling of community service projects: 

  • Serving meals at the Loaves and Fishes Center; 
  • Coordinating the collection of food packages for the Emergency Food Pantry; 
  • And volunteering at the Berkshire Hills Music Academy, a school for challenged yet musically gifted young people.
