Volunteers have a special place at Cristo Rey Boston High School. Whether you want to work one-on-one with students or participate in the Jobs Committee to lend your business experience to the Corporate Work Study Program, we welcome you!

The Notre Dame Mission Volunteers AmeriCorps 

The Notre Dame Mission Volunteers AmeriCorps Program at Cristo Rey Boston High School provides college graduates the opportunity to serve urban young people through an innovative, Catholic educational model. Corps members serve at least one academic year with an option for a second year and live in a community in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a short walk to our school. Learn more about AmeriCorps
 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We also need volunteers to help the school on an ongoing basis in a number ways:

  • Tutoring – the school relies heavily on volunteers to tutor students after school and sometimes on weekends. If you are interested in tutoring, please contact Rebecca Geddes  at rgeddes@cristoreyboston.org.
  • Assisting with Clubs, Activities and Sports – If you have a special talent that you would like to share with our young people, please contact our Athletic Director, Joseph Stuart, at jstuart@cristoreyboston.org.
  • Leadership Advisory Council –The LAC is a dedicated group of young professionals who contribute to the mission of the school by helping secure job placements for our students, introducing new friends, helping plan friend-raisers and fundraisers, and tutoring. The group meets quarterly, and particularly assists the school in preparing its annual Academic Signing Day. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Lynne Polcari at lpolcari@cristoreyboston.org
  • Lunch Servers: We need responsible adults to help serve lunch to our students from 11:00-1:30 Mondays through Fridays. If you can come in for any or all of these times, please contact Ray Dewar, Principal, at 617-285-2580 or rdewar@cristoreyboston.org
  • Library Aides: We need responsible adults to be able to help in our Library with re-shelving books, book returns, book check-outs and coverage of the Library. Times for this can be flexible, but during our lunch periods, we have our greatest need (11:00-1:30). If you can come in for any or all of these times, please contact Ray Dewar, Principal at 617-825-2580 or rdewar@cristoreyboston.org
