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. 

TeamWorks provides specialized volunteering opportunities around a theme or impact area and with some of our most popular non-profit partner sites. As a TeamWorks volunteer, you will join a team of 6-10 other individual volunteers and serve together over 6-8 weeks. This gives you an opportunity to build your volunteer community and delve deeper into your projects. 

TeamWorks runs five times a year: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday. All teams will participate in service learning to better understand the impact our partner organizations make with the help of volunteers. 

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.
