The Boston Cares TeamWorks Program is focused on facilitating the shift from casual volunteering to intentional citizenship. Each TeamWorks session consists of a series of three to five projects, where individual volunteers select a team to learn about specific issues, organizations and/or communities encountered through volunteerism.  As a TeamWorks volunteer, you will join a team of 6-10 other individual volunteers and serve together over 6-8 weeks. 

Please be mindful when committing to a team that these organizations depend on a specific volunteer group size in order to provide their services. Attendance at all projects, including the kickoff, is expected.

TeamWorks will run four times a year: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall/Holiday.
