Volunteer Face PaintingBoston Cares is here to provide individuals and groups meaningful volunteer experiences at community agencies in need. We provide a wide array of programs and opportunities that make it easy for you to volunteer no matter how busy your schedule is. Each month we manage between 175-275 direct service volunteer projects that make an impact on the community. We arrange and organize the projects, so you can dedicate your time to volunteering and not searching for a project that suits your needs. As you gain experience, Boston Cares also provides ongoing volunteering with a TeamWorks group and volunteer leadership opportunities.

To become a member and have full access to our online system and calendar of more than 175 projects each month, Boston Cares requires that individuals attend a New Volunteer Orientation. These take place several times each month at various locations.  Each hour long session provides valuable information about Boston Cares and our programs and how to get the most out of your volunteer experience.

Some benefits of membership include:

  • The ability to search, find and sign up for projects on our website;
  • Email confirmations and reminders with project details like descriptions, directions and contact information;
  • A member profile that you can view your volunteer history, set your preferences, and modify your contact information; and
