  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 20 people are interested

Seeking volunteers (21+) to be matched as a Friend with an adult with disabilities (18+) in our MAGIC (Monthly Activity Groups in the Community), whereby 12-13 pairs of friends meet to do a staff organized event. Matches meet a couple of hours, just one designated Wednesday evening a month, for a preassigned activity with other pairs of friends. Activities include cooking classes, karaoke nights, festive meals, or a local college sporting event. Most activities take place in Brookline, Brighton, Newton, Allston or Boston and are accessible by public transportation. MAGIC is a great way to spend time with your Friend, but also to connect with others in the program in a social way. As a volunteer, all you need to do is show up, meet your friend, and enjoy the organized free activity.
