Getting Started

"Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A recent study found that more than 4,500 volunteers give more than 200,000 hours of their time to help make Cambridge a better community for all.

Cambridge volunteers tutor and mentor children, teens and adults. They pull out invasive weeds at Fresh Pond and along the Charles. They organize groceries at one of more than 15 food pantries in the city.

They serve on city advisory boards, make buildings, houses, and nonprofits more energy efficient, cook meals for the homeless, participate in Cambridge MLK Day of Service, and much more.

Volunteers are tremendously important to the city of Cambridge.

So how do you get started?
