SOAR 55 facilitates your search for the right volunteer assignment.
SOAR 55 offers maximum choice and flexibility to its volunteers as it matches personal interests, skills and individual schedules with interesting and rewarding opportunities to serve in their local communities. As you will discover, volunteering can lead to a myriad of possibilities and experiences that otherwise might pass you by. It’s a way to meet new people and foster purposeful relationships. You’ll use your skills, learn new ones, have fun and, most importantly, “do good” in a world that sorely needs it. Time and time again, we hear that volunteers feel they get more than they give.
Finding a suitable volunteer opportunity can take considerable time and effort. Established in 1972, SOAR 55 is a recognized volunteer resource with a vast knowledge of the local volunteer environment and with solid connections to the Newton and metro west nonprofit community. With these credentials and a strong commitment to meeting individual needs, SOAR 55 is positioned to offer you a markedly streamlined and more effective volunteer search.
In addition to matching individuals to volunteer opportunities with nonprofits, SOAR 55 responds to gaps in community resources with signature volunteer programs like the Nonprofit Management Consulting Group, the CENTS program, Friendly Visitors and Steps to Success. Please browse the Resources section of this page for Listings of Volunteer Opportunities and Consulting Projects for more information on these and other opportunities.
