Join Boston Cares for Global Youth Service Day 


Global Youth Service Day is the single largest youth volunteer engagement day in the world - engaging youth up to the age of 25 in more than 110 countries! 

Join the Boston Cares Teen Advisory Council to celebrate National Volunteer Week and Global Youth Service Day on Saturday, April 21st! 

This year, we will be working to support families that have been evacuated from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, and are resettling in Massachusetts. While news coverage has lessened, many people are still without power or have been relocated to new and unfamiliar places.

The Teen Advisory Council has organized a hygiene product drive for families who have moved to Boston. For Global Youth Service Day, we will be sorting these donations, creating hygiene kit bags, and painting new bed frames for the families being supported by the Salvation Army. 

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Amazon Wishlist! Volunteers were able to create 75 hygiene product kits for families thanks to the generosity of our supporters!


Projects include:

  • Packing hygiene products for families
  • Decorating the tote bags in which the products will be placed
  • Creating Welcome to Boston Cards to send the families well wishes
  • Painting beds, built by Boston Cares volunteers, that will be sent to families affected by the hurricane.
