One Year Program

General Information

A few times a year, we open up our One Year Program to new applicants, ages 18 and older. We ask that these volunteers complete one 4-hour shift per week for the duration of one year. We review applications on a first-come first-service basis, and keep a wait list for those who are eligible but beyond our current capacity needs. If you are interested in a particular session, please check this web page two to three months before the start of your chosen program for instructions on how to apply.

Placement will be made on an individual basis. Additionally, the volunteer will assist their supervisor with any other needs, such as unit programming, preparing materials for special events and helping to organize and maintain a safe, clean environment while assisting with toy washing.

Location: Main Campus, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston MA

Deadline: The Reference Form is due within 1 week of submitting the online application. We will follow up with all applicants via email within 3-4 weeks of our recruitment date.

 

How to Apply?

Recruitment is currently closed. The volunteer application will be posted and available starting on September 23, 2019, and we will be looking for volunteers to start in mid-November 2019 with a commitment of one year. Please check back in to this page periodically for updated information.

Please keep in mind that we require that all candidates submit a complete application, which includes both the Volunteer Application and the Reference Form. We only consider complete applications when booking interviews.
