Cambridge Volunteer Clearinghouse


Founded in 1994, the Clearinghouse matches volunteers of all ages with Cambridge agencies that need their skills and talents.

FOR VOLUNTEERS: Our goal is to streamline your search for a short- or long-term volunteer engagement. Take advantage of our free monthly workshops and continually updated communications/postings, plus email/phone advice and individual meetings.
FOR AGENCIES: We help you get out the word about upcoming volunteer needs and connect you with specialized volunteers. We also convene periodic conversations for agency staff regarding volunteer management.
