Volunteer Opportunities

Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, volunteer opportunities are currently available on a more limited basis. Please inquire with Director of Volunteer Services, Holly Clark at holly_clark@ccab.org, for more information.

Please consider a donation at www.ccab.org/donate or you can send items via Amazon. Items needed include: diapers, personal hygiene items, formula, dry goods (pasta, cereal, granola bars, kid snacks) and can be sent to Catholic Charities Yawkey Center, 185 Columbia Road Dorchester MA 02121.


Thank you for your interest in volunteering! While each Catholic Charities' program is unique, the typical process consists of an application, a confidentiality agreement, a CORI clearance, two references and a personal interview with a staff member.

Catholic Charities respects the contribution of volunteers at the same level as professional staff. Both are required to have appropriate clearances before interacting with clients. Before placement, your signature will be requested to give us permission to obtain a CORI (criminal records) clearance. 

Volunteer opportunities are listed below by region. If you would like further information about these opportunities, please contact the person specified with each listing. That contact person has the most information and knowledge about each respective opportunity.
