The Boston Cares TeamWorks Program provides volunteers with opportunities to make short-term commitments to nonprofit partners, while building relationships with a small team of fellow volunteers. Each TeamWorks cycle is built around the needs of a nonprofit partner, with a series of 4-8 projects over a 6-8 week time period. Volunteers commit to the series, giving the partner a consistent group of volunteers who get to know their organization and clients over the course of the program. Through their service, volunteers will learn more about the agency partner and the community issues they’re addressing, while serving together in a small team of dedicated volunteers.
For volunteers, TeamWorks is great way to dive deeper into an issue or an agency without making a long-term commitment, and a great opportunity to get to know your fellow volunteers and build community. For our nonprofit partners, TeamWorks offers a great way to bring volunteers into programs that require some consistency, or have a short orientation/training before getting started.
TeamWorks cycles run seasonally and vary based on the needs of our partners.
