Make an impact with the Youth and Education (High School) Corps! We are looking for fresh faces to join existing Corps Volunteers in working with high school students to advance their education and provide college and career application support.

The Youth and Education (High School) Corps combines Boston Cares’ signature flexibility with a focused commitment to an impact area and the resources to make a measurable change. Corps volunteers 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 Prospect Hill Academy, which are focused on developing academic support for Boston’s high school students. Corps volunteers deepen their community engagement by committing to serve twice-a-month through the Corps and attending skill building opportunities.
