We are so excited to meet you!  The First Year Urban Program is dedicated to introducing you to the public service community at Harvard, which includes over 100 public service opportunities addressing issues locally, nationally and internationally. We are lucky to be based in one of the most dynamic urban areas in the country with a rich history of community organizing and advocating for social justice.  At FUP, we partner with community leaders to take a critical look at the major issues facing our communities and how to work with each other as allies and partners in creating a more equitable society. If you are looking to meet others who want to learn about the world and how to address critical social issues while in college-- we welcome you to join us at FUP!
