Facilitate ServiceWorks Workshops in the Community

Are you interested in inspiring the next generation of service in your community?  Do you want to be an agent of change?  The Boston Cares ServiceWorks team is looking for volunteers to aid in coaching youth in communities on topics including leadership, communication, networking, and professionalism under the umbrella of service in their neighborhoods.  Youth will also put together a final project which will address a specific need that they have determined their community needs.  

Volunteers will support ServiceWorks Cohorts during the following dates and times:

•	Brighton High School (Short walk from Green B Line - Warren Street)  
        **Starting December 11** 
        Tuesday/Wednesday | 1:41PM-2:23PM

•	Jeremiah Burke (Orange Line to Bus 16, 29, 23)

•	Boston Public Health Commission (Short walk from Orange Line at

Boston Cares ServiceWorks is a youth engagement program. Through ServiceWorks, we partner with youth organizations in the Boston area and offer a unique curriculum designed to engage young people aged 16-24, whom we call “Service Scholars,” in community service. Through ServiceWorks, the Scholars gain critical leadership and workplace skills, strengthened networks and community connections AND the opportunity to apply those skills by volunteering and leading their own community service projects. The three pillars of the ServiceWorks program include skill building, volunteering, and success coaching.


As a ServiceWorks volunteer, you would deliver the curriculum, facilitate discussion, and assist in the planning and execution of the service project. ServiceWorks may be delivered in several different models, but it generally requires approximately two hours per week of its volunteers. No prior experience with teaching or youth programming is required, though we hope to recruit volunteers who are excited about the prospect of working with young people, and are able to connect individually with scholars as well as keep a classroom full of them engaged in the curriculum.
