UTEC & AmeriCorps Visits Fenway!

The Massachusetts Service Alliance donated a bundle of tickets to the Red Sox game against the Oakland A's to the UTEC AmeriCorps crew. The crew was able to bring a group of young people with them to the game which to some of them was their first Red Sox game ever! It was a great time and we all hope to be able to go back sometime soon!
