One-Year Volunteer Program

General information

A few times a year, we open up our program to new applicants (ages 18 and older). We ask that these volunteers complete one four-hour shift per week for the duration of one year. If you are interested in a particular session, please check this page two to three months before the start of your chosen program for instructions on how to apply.

Placement will be made on an individual basis. Additionally, the volunteer will assist their supervisor with any other needs, such as unit programming, preparing materials for special events, and helping to organize and maintain a safe, clean environment while assisting with toy washing.

  • Location: Main Campus, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115
  • Deadline: Your reference form is due within one week of submitting the online application. We will follow up with all applicants via email within three to four weeks of our recruitment date.

How to apply

Recruitment is currently closed. Our next recruitment period will be in July, and we will be looking for volunteers to start in September with a commitment of one year. Please check back in to this page in June for more information about our fall recruitment dates.
