Looking to have a lasting impact?
Enjoy consistent volunteering with the same organization?
As New England’s largest volunteer mobilizer, Boston Cares partners with 165 non-profit organizations and offers over 200 volunteer opportunities per month through our various programs. With so many possibilities for volunteering, it may be hard to know where to begin. Perhaps you’re new to volunteering and trying to figure out which program best fits your wants and needs. Or maybe you’ve been involved in flexible volunteer opportunities and you are looking for more commitment. Where ever you are in your volunteering journey, you will find that each of our programs has its own benefits that suit different life styles and preferences. If you are you looking to be involved in a commitment based program where you are able to build relationships with the partners and the communities you’re serving, the Boston Cares Corps Program may be for you!
Join us at our Corps Kickoff on Saturday, January 27th!
The Boston Cares Corps Program is an impact driven opportunity for volunteers who are dedicated to building and strengthening their skills, deepening their community engagement, and making a difference in the lives of Greater Bostonians through tutoring. Our Corps program focuses on improving skills and developing resources in English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), Basic Technology, and Youth & Education for communities in need.
Unlike the flexible Boston Cares programs, the Corps looks for volunteers who are willing to commit to one site for an extended period of time. We truly believe in the lasting impact of building relationships with partner organizations and the students they serve. As such, Corps volunteers will serve at least 2 times a month at one partner organization and work one-on-one or with a group of students to form communities together. We offer team skill building opportunities throughout the year; lead by experienced educators in the field, as a way to continuously support the experience of both the volunteers and the communities served. Through on-going skill building and professional development provided by the Corps program, volunteers will gain valuable experience and leadership skills that can be used to stand out from the crowd.
