FINDING ACTIVITIES & SERVICES IN CAMBRIDGE SURVEY
HOW CAN WE MAKE IT EASIER

The City of Cambridge and the Kids' Council, with the support of Code for Boston, are developing a plan to make sure families, youth, and those who support them have the ability to easily find the activities, services and resources they are looking for in Cambridge, when they are looking for them.

We want to develop a new and improved technology to meet your needs, which is why we are asking you, your friends, colleagues and neighbors to complete this quick 5 minute survey.

Link to Survey

You can take the survey in Arabic, Afrikaans, English, French, German, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Italian, Korean, or Spanish. If you would like paper copies or have any questions, please contact Nancy Tauber, Executive Director of the Kids' Council at ntauber@cambridgema.gov or 617-349-6239.

NEW! Pick-up Games Mondays at Russell Field

Pick-up Mondays under the lights at Russell Field. We have reserved Monday nights at 6:00 PM for anybody who wants to play pick-up soccer. No coaching allowed! We expect the kids will want to break into two games, maybe a U10/Champions game and a U12 and up game. The expectation is that this will be fun, informal soccer for anybody to join.
