How do I sign up to volunteer?

01

 Right here! Fill out the volunteer interest form to record your general interest in any of our programs. Each response records your interest in volunteering for just one of our programs. Once you fill out the interest form, we’ll send you another form to record your availability for your chosen program and we’ll reach out again when there's an opportunity that matches your availability!

Are there youth volunteer opportunities?

02

Of course! All of our volunteer opportunities are open to youth. Youth can also volunteer directly through our youth program, which has opportunities for middle school students, high school students, and college students. Our Vigorous Youth program is for 14-21 year olds and it provides Mattapan youth with leadership experience, personal and professional development, as well as volunteer opportunities through events such as Mattapan on Wheels. If you are a Mattapan youth and looking for employment through our Vigorous Youth Program, reach out to us at Shawntell@mattapanfoodandfit.org

What volunteer opportunities are available?

03

All our available volunteer opportunities will be listed on our events page! Fill out the general volunteer interest form if you’re interested in volunteering for a program that doesn’t have current volunteer opportunities — we’ll email you when some become available.
