Ways to help

Virtual Volunteering

In response to the pandemic, Boston Cares has worked with our community partners to identify ways volunteers can support local needs from the safety of their own homes. Opportunities include DIY projects at home, virtual/phone support, tutoring, and capacity building roles, with more needs being added regularly.

Volunteer Leaders

Volunteer Leaders (VLs) are an integral part of the Boston Cares experience. They serve as a liaison between volunteers, agency partners, and Boston Cares to ensure a positive experience for all. Every project posted on our calendar is first picked up by a VL - without VLs, there would be no projects on our calendar for volunteers to serve our community!
