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. Our organization was founded on the simple idea that anyone with a little time and a passion for improving their community can make a difference. Through acts of volunteerism, we believe we can build a stronger community and a more just world. The very basic core of that work must be rooted in the belief that we all have a place of value in this community, and that our diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, abilities, and lived experiences enrich our community.


Boston Cares is the largest volunteer agency in New England, a member of the Points of Light Global Network, and an award-winning leader in the volunteer engagement sector. Filling more than 20,000 volunteer spots annually in support of more than 150 Greater Boston schools and non-profit agencies, we offer a wide array of programs and opportunities that make it simple for you to volunteer no matter how busy your schedule. We believe volunteers transform communities through service and civic engagement.

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.
