Mission Statement

One Brick provides support to local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. We enable people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.

Description

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, One Brick is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that brings volunteers together to support other local non-profits by adopting an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering, and after each volunteer event -- which typically lasts only 3 to 4 hours -- we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or caf where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting.

Our 'commitment-free volunteering' allows you to choose when you volunteer, rather than having to make commitments for a certain number of volunteer hours, or agree to be available every week at a specific time.

One Brick is the perfect organization for people looking to help the community as well as connect with others! The One Brick Boston calendar is full of varied volunteer opportunities to satisfy many different interests. They're timed in a way to fit into the schedules of working professionals, as they occur in the evenings or on the weekends. There is no regular commitment or training requirements - you just sign up, show up, and volunteer! And better yet: they add a social component to volunteering! After the majority of events, the One Brick Event Manager will invite the volunteers to an optional social, so they can continue getting to know each other. It's the perfect mix! I can't recommend volunteering with One Brick enough.
