The program is built around a Calendar of volunteer opportunities that feature more than 200 monthly projects at nearly 180 nonprofits and schools. As a volunteer, you can sign up for one date-and-time specific project at a time, as often as your schedule allows. Opportunities range from Serving Meals at the Women's Lunch Place to tutoring adults at X-Cel Education to Crafts and Conversations with Seniors to environmental projects like Gardening on the Greenway.
Each project is led by a trained Volunteer Leader who works to ensure a smooth and successful project from all sides. They facilitate communication leading up to the project and support volunteers day-of.
To get started with your first projects as a Boston Cares volunteer, simply create an account, and sign up to attend a New Volunteer Orientation. From there, you'll be on your way to building a Greater Boston!
