December 1 was the first application deadline. January 31 is the second application deadline. Applications received on or before December 1 are the first reviewed. We are not able to accept any applications after January 31.
  6. Sign-up for the Spring Applicant Open House and Interview Weekend - This event is scheduled for the weekend of February 28 - March 2.  The intention of this weekend is to allow those who have submitted application for the next academic year the opportunity to visit the UCTC residence, meet current UCTC members, and get a brief introduction to the city of Boston. The weekend offers you the opportunity to interview in person, see the neighborhood and the schools in which we serve, socialize with current volunteers, have fun, and get all of your questions answered.  You will walk away with a good sense of what life is like as a UCTC volunteer.
