Boston Cares is partnering with the City of Boston and Boston Public Schools to provide centralized volunteer recruitment and coordation to meet the emerging needs of the City during the COVID-19 pandemic. Projects addressing current needs are updated regularly.

If you are not already a Boston Cares member, to sign up for projects listed on this page, you will first need to create an account here. All opportunities listed on this page are open to the public - the Boston Cares orientation is NOT required prior to signing up. If you are prompted to sign up for an Orientation, you can skip this step and return here to sign up for an opportunity. Once registered, click each yellow title to be taken to a page to sign up for a specific date and time. After signing up for an event you will receive an automatic confirmation email that includes specific address information for your project.

We are collectively taking all advised precautions to protect volunteers and community members, and we ask all volunteers to do the same. If you are feeling ill, or if you have had a fever or symptoms in the past 24 hours, please do not volunteer. If you knowingly have been exposed to COVID-19, please do not volunteer. All volunteer opportunities will be organized to meet social distancing recommendations, hand sanitizer will be provided, and interaction with residents will be minimized.

Volunteer Opportunities:

There currently are no projects scheduled in partnership with the City of Boston or Boston Public Schools.

If you are interested in volunteering with Boston Public Schools for opportunities in the future, but don't see projects listed below that fit your interests, please complete this form or email volunteer@boston.gov.
