Mission Statement

Boston Cares organizes and leads team-oriented volunteer opportunities and services in and around Boston that have a positive impact on individuals and communities.

Description

Boston Cares serves more than 100 non-profit organizations with needs that can be filled by flexibly scheduled teams of volunteers. The organization's signature Calendar Program features up to 150 projects each month through which members volunteer at a variety of projects -- serving meals, planting community gardens, cleaning parks, painting community centers, tutoring, reading to kids, and much more. Youth and families volunteer through special BOOYAH! - Boston's Young Active Hands - projects. Through our Citizen Academy, people explore issues encountered in community service and identify action steps they can take. Company teams contribute through Boston Cares' annual Corporate Volunteer Day and the year-round Hands at Work program. Frosty's Friends is our winter holiday gift drive through which volunteers respond to letters from 1,700 disadvantaged children.

Would you recommend Boston Cares?

Boston Cares is a fantastic organization and it is a great way to begin volunteering. Before Boston Cares I had never volunteered before but they made it very simple. Each group has fun volunteer opportunities planned for them according to the theme of the group. I volunteered with them for two consecutive cycles and met some really amazing people. I reccomend Boston Cares to newcomers to volunteering and veterans too. It is a great way to meet likeminded people intent on bettering the community.
