Join a Board


Thanks for your interestin the Boston Cares Board of Directors and Boston Cares Associate Board! We are not currently accepting applications. However, if you are interested in joining one of our Boards, you can review the position descriptions to learn more about the role and responsibilities of Boston Cares Board of Directors members and the Boston Cares Associate Board

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at boardapps@bostoncares.org.

 

We, as Boston Cares, endeavor to have a board and staff that reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds, and all applications will be reviewed in accordance with our Nondiscrimination Policy

With the renewed nationwide focus on racial equity following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black Americans, Boston Cares is committed to being part of the change. We are actively assessing our own programs and practices, and have formed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee comprised of Board, Associate Board, and Staff members. The DEI committee is working with Boston Cares leadership to develop new programming and training opportunities and to address race and equity as they relate to our work in the community. We recognize that Boston Cares volunteers serve diverse communities in all corners of our city, and yet, our volunteer and Board demographics are not yet fully reflective of that diversity. We want to bring a multitude of opinions and voices, from all cultures and backgrounds, to the table to grow and strengthen our organization, and are committed to attracting and retaining a board, staff, and volunteer base that are representative of the communities we work within. As an organization, we will continuously strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and supported.
