Boston College Neighborhood Center


Welcome to the Boston College Neighborhood Center!

On our web pages, the Neighborhood Center's Programs and Resources are described. We encourage all students (graduate and undergraduate), staff, faculty, and community residents to volunteer with us and/or utilize our services. Please feel free to contact us about any of our programs. We look forward to working with you.

About Us
Meet the staff of the Neighborhood Center and find out what we are about and where we are located.

Looking to volunteer?
If you have two spare hours a week or a few hours a month you can easily make a difference in someone's life, as well as expand your learning experience beyond the Boston College campus. Participate in one of our programs. Become a Neighborhood Volunteer.

Need volunteers or requesting a service?
Perhaps you are a community resident or agency looking for services. Whether you are a parent or teacher looking for a tutor for your child or students, or you are an agency looking for some additional help with your service project, or you are newly arrived to the Allston-Brighton community and are interested in learning English; you have come to the right place--we can help!
