Worcester Homecoming is a collaborative effort to enhance and sustain the momentum of Worcester’s renaissance, while at the same time bolstering recovery efforts from the pandemic. We want to drive inclusive economic growth in the region and build a network of notable alumni who feel deeply connected to the city and our community.
