We’re One Brick Boston, and we make volunteering fun, easy, and social with no long-term committment required. Want to volunteer once a month? You're our new best friend! Only have time to volunteer once a year? You must be very busy and important, but we are here when you have time.
We work with dozens of local nonprofits and provide a variety of unique and fun volunteer opportunities
We hold 6-14 events per month that consist of 2-5 hours of pure giving back goodness
After volunteering, we regroup at a local eatery or bar, socialize and celebrate a job well-done.
Our area of impact is Greater Boston (Boston (all neigborhoods), Cambridge, Brooklne, Somerville, Malden, Newton, Quincy, Revere, etc.) in areas accessible by MBTA bus, subway, or trolleys.
We’ve worked with over 90 nonprofits since we've started in Boston in late 2011 and have provided nearly 10,000 hours of support to benefit our community. Some nonprofits we work with include Aids Action, More Than Words, Saturday/Sunday's Bread, Cambridge Center for Families, American Red Cross, Bikes Not Bombs, and many more!
We do things like:
Prepare and serve meals for local residents in need
Disassemble and sort bicycles to be shipped to developing countries
Sort and scan books alongside youth at a youth-run business
Help judge high school debate competitions
We’re all volunteers. Everyone that keeps One Brick Boston going behind the scenes loves giving back just like you. After all, why else would you be browsing a site solely devoted to finding you a great volunteer opportunity?
So come volunteer. And socialize. Give back to this city that we love.
