In consideration of the safety and health of our students and partners, all 4Boston volunteering will be conducted remotely for the Fall 2020 semester. As a result, many of our partners' volunteer shifts are subject to change. We ask all new and returning volunteers to be flexible as we work to meet the scheduling needs of both our partners and student volunteers. Please contact Carly Anderson at  carly.anderson@bc.edu with any questions.
