Catholic Charities is building a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people. As one of the largest providers of social services in Massachusetts, Catholic Charities of Boston offers 90 programs and services in 27 locations around Eastern Massachusetts.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! While each Catholic Charities' program is unique, the typical process consists of an application, a confidentiality agreement, a CORI clearance, two references and a personal interview with a staff member.
Catholic Charities respects the contribution of volunteers at the same level as professional staff. Both are required to have appropriate clearances before interacting with clients. Before placement, your signature will be requested to give us permission to obtain a CORI (criminal records) clearance.
Volunteer opportunities are listed on the website by region. If you would like further information about these opportunities, please contact the person specified with each listing. That contact person has the most information and knowledge about each respective opportunity.
