Earthen Vessels - Fifteen years ago we met while tutoring inner-city kids through the EV program. EV matches Harvard students with kids from the Boston neighborhoods of Dorchester and Roxbury to provide one-on-one afterschool tutoring and mentorship. It also runs a summer camp for the kids. We are not sure who gets more out of the program - the kids, who get help with their homework and a chance to escape the city every summer, or the Harvard students, who get to climb down from the Ivory Tower one afternoon a week and learn some real lessons. But we do know that EV played a large role in leading Marie to teaching and then to a career in education and child advocacy law. And we are pretty sure it did some good for Jonathan, too. EV is an amazing small organization that makes a big difference in the lives of both the inner-city kids and the Harvard students it serves. www.evkids.org

It started serving homeless youth in the East Village in the 1970s and has grown to serve communities throughout the Americas. It cares for children who are in the most desperate situations. www.covenanthouse.org
