Global Volunteer Month

April 1st - April 30th, 2024

Each year, Points of Light hosts Global Volunteer Month to celebrate the goals reached and the impact made by volunteers who commit to mindful service. For the entire month of April, volunteers are encouraged to reflect on their efforts made toward strengthening communities, to continue learning how to be better neighbors, and to consider what they can do daily to engage meaningfully with local communities and initiatives. Enjoy this Global Volunteer Month and Boston Cares' celebrations by renewing your commitment to service!

Celebrate with us on April 28!

Join us on April 24th at 12pm for an interactive webinar on how you can take your volunteer experience to the next level by joining a nonprofit board. Learn more and register here.
