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 Corps program combines Boston Cares’ signature flexibility with a focused commitment to an impact area, and the resources to make a measurable change.
Corps members will have the opportunity to be a part of a network of volunteers with common interests, skilled professionals, and specific non-profit organizations dedicated to the Corps’ thematic service model.
Boston Cares currently has four different Corps to choose from:
- Basic Technology Corps: Advance technology education, access, and skills for youth and adults.
- ESOL Corps: Support volunteer ESOL instructors in the classroom, work one-on-one with students to improve specific skills, or lead conversation groups to better equip students for everyday interactions in English.
- Youth & Education Corps (K-8): Work with elementary and middle school students to build skills from reading and literacy to robotics.
- Youth & Education Corps (High School): Tutor and assist students with their college and job research and application processes.
