Youth and Education Corps

The Youth and Education 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.

See a complete list of expectations and benefits of the Corps program, here.
