Become a Volunteer Leader!
Tuesday, January 23rd | 6:00PM-7:30PM
 
 
 
 
 
Volunteer Leaders are the backbone of the work we do at Boston Cares. The quantity and diversity of projects that are on the monthly calendar directly correlates with the number of active Volunteer Leaders. The course will cover how to lead a project, the functionality of our website, and tips for making each volunteer experience engaging and exciting. Becoming a Volunteer Leader is a great way to increase your impact as a volunteer and gain leadership skills. Currently we have a high need for Volunteer Leaders with daytime availability!
