Class of 2008
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Tufts University in 2016, Madison Hafitz joined AmeriCorps. For the past two years she has served with City Year Boston, an education-focused nonprofit that keeps students on track to graduate and ready for college and career success. During her first term of service, she worked with a partner teacher in a 5th grade, English as a Second Language classroom, where she was a tutor, mentor and role model for students. Following her year working in the classroom, Madison stayed on with City Year in a new position as a Senior AmeriCorps member on the Boston Civic Engagement team. This role involved planning physical community service projects all over the city of Boston, and engaging with volunteers and corporate sponsors. Following her graduation from City Year in June, where she was selected as the Corps’ Commencement Speaker, she is excited to be heading back to school herself. She will begin pursuing a Master’s in Public Health at the University of Michigan this fall.
