OLD Youth and Education Corps!

Make an impact with the Youth and Education (K-8) Corps!
We are looking for fresh faces to join existing Corps Members
in working with local elementary and middle school students
to advance their education and engage them in learning!

The Boston Cares Corps program is an impact driven
opportunity for volunteers dedicated to building and
strengthening their skills, deepening their community
engagement, and making a difference in the lives
of Greater Bostonians.

The Youth and Education (K-8) Corps combines Boston Cares’
signature flexibility with a focused commitment to an impact
area and the resources to make a measurable change. Corps
members are a part of a network of volunteers who share a
passion for enhancing educational opportunities for local youth.
Volunteers serve at 2-4 partner organizations, such as UP
Academy Dorchester, which are focused on developing learning
opportunities for Boston’s elementary and middle school students.
Corps members deepen their community engagement by
committing to serve twice-a-month through the Corps and
attending skill building opportunities. See a complete list of
expectations and benefits of the Corps program, here.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in:

1. Joining the Youth and Education (K-8) Corps and meeting the Corps
expectations, including serving 2 times/month at Corps partner sites

2. Working in classroom, tutoring session, and after school enrichment activities
with elementary and middle school students to enhance their learning

3. Volunteers with flexible, day-time availability, mostly in the 9am-5pm range

All Youth and Education (K-8) Corps Members will need to complete and pass a
CORI Background check and plan to attend our kick-off training on
Saturday, January 30th (Time and location TBD)
to join the Corps. The
kickoff will provide volunteers with the opportunity to meet new and
current Corps members, learn tips & tricks from knowledgeable and local
professionals, as well as receive an orientation from local partner agencies
so you’re ready to go at your first projects!

If you are interested in this opportunity, please Express Interest below. You will then be contacted by Boston Cares staff with additional information and a brief application.  Please contact Orláith Duggan, oduggan@bostoncares.org with any questions.
