Teen Program

We need writing tutors/coaches for our current teens and college-enrolled alumni. If you have the skills to teach writing at the high school/early college level. 

We always need more mentors -- friends, advocates, coaches, and listeners who provide our teens with:

  • Learning opportunities

  • A positive role model

  • Social support and encouragement

  • Advocacy and access to community resources

  • Unconditional friendship

Year-Round K-8 Programming

During the school year, volunteer as a tutor, group helper, or reading buddy. The time commitment is 2:30-6:00 p.m. We especially need volunteers when B-READY is in session but our college-aged volunteers are on break or gone for the summer.

We also need occasional volunteers to: prepare a hearty snack or meal; share a talent, passion or skill; and host a Fun Friday Enrichment Day

During the summer, partner organizations, mainly communities of faith, support B-SAFE at one of our six sites by selecting a week to prepare and serve lunch, read with students, and sponsor an all-day field trip on Fridays. There are opportunities for volunteers of all ages.

Fill out our Volunteer Interest Form and we will contact you.

Our multi-generational School And Community Partnerships support the schools our students attend and endeavor to make their neighborhoods safer. (Check out photos from our recent MLK Day Of Action at the Blackstone Innovation School).

We also run the B-PEACE For Jorge Campaign on behalf of the Diocese of Massachusetts and turn out hundreds of participants for the Louis D. Brown Mother's Day Walk For Peace. To find out how you can become involved in the campaign, please contact
