ReachOut! Opportunities - Summer Cycle 2018

Welcome to Summer Cycle 2018! ReachOut! volunteers continue to provide meaningful service throughout Greater Boston while meeting other young adults who are passionate about volunteerism. This summer, we are offering three different ways to volunteer: weekly volunteering, drop-in opportunities, and one-off events.

ReachOut! Summer Cycle 2018 Volunteer Sites:

Participants sign up to volunteer at one of these sites on a weekly basis throughout our summer cycle. Get to know your fellow volunteers and the clients at your site throughout the cycle.

• Senior Connections at The Golda Meir House, Newton on Mondays
• Hunger and Homelessness at The Paulist Center, Downtown Boston on Wednesdays
• Senior Connections at Hebrew Senior Life, 100 Centre Street, Brookline on Wednesdays

Drop-in Volunteering

Traveling this summer? Don’t worry, you can still volunteer with ReachOut! This cycle we are offering a new drop-in volunteer option to allow you to have a bit more flexibility with your volunteering. There will be volunteer spots saved at three of our sites throughout the cycle for drop-in volunteers. If you choose this option, you will be sent a link to register for individual volunteer nights at The Golda Meir House, The Paulist Center, Tuesday Meals at First Parish, and Hebrew SeniorLife. Sign up for as many as you like, but please note: these spots will fill up on a first-come-first-served basis.

One-off Volunteer Events

Looking for more ways to volunteer? We have three one-off volunteer events happening this summer!

Charles River Cleanup will take place on Sunday, July 15th from 9:00am-12:00pm at the Newton Historic Boathouse at 2401 Commonwealth Avenue in Auburndale. Volunteers will be helping to remove water chestnuts, an invasive species, from the Charles River.

Emerald Necklace will take place on Tuesday, July 31st and Tuesday, August 14th from 5:30pm-7:30pm in the Rose Garden at 77 Park Drive. Volunteers will be helping to clean up and maintain the garden.
