Boston Cares organizes and leads team-oriented volunteer opportunities and services in and around Boston to make a positive impact on individuals and communities.
Boston Cares mobilizes more than 25,000 volunteers annually in support of Greater Boston schools and non-profit agencies. We offer a wide array of programs and opportunities that make it easy for you to volunteer no matter how busy your schedule is. Our signature Calendar Program features more than 250 projects each month through which members volunteer at a variety of projects. These projects include: * planting community gardens, * serving meals to the homeless, * cleaning parks, * painting community centers, * tutoring children, * GED prep for adults, * ushering at cultural performances, * and much, much more. Boston Cares is excited to offer Learn & Serve (formerly Teen TeamWorks) to middle and high school teens aged 13 - 18. This four-day program is an alternative spring break opportunity that is fun, impactful, and informative.
