Volunteer Leader Training

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.

To qualify for this training, you must be a current Boston Cares member who has attended at least three Boston Cares Calendar Projects.
