Wellesley teen Sarah Kavoogian, a 16-year-old student at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, and another teen recently led a volunteer project to move a homeless family into an apartment in Dorchester. They coordinated the apartment decorating and furnishing effort through the nonprofit Heading Home organization in Charlestown.

“This was such a rewarding experience,” Kavoogian said in a statement. “It was so amazing that we could take furniture that no one wanted anymore and make an entire home for a family.”
