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. After creating an account you can register for a Boston Cares New Volunteer Orientation here.

Click the sign up button on opportunities listed on this page, 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.
