Experience the difference a day makes

If you want to engage with and learn about the local community but can’t make a long-term commitment, you’ll find CityDays a perfect fit. It’s a series of one-day volunteer engagements with community organizations in Cambridge and Boston. We identify organizations looking for volunteers—all you have to do is engage. We handle all the logistics, including service placements and travel.

What it’s all about

  • Four one-day service events per year
  • Five hundred volunteers serve with approximately twenty-five local nonprofit agencies annually
  • Tasks range from construction and food distribution to riverfront cleanup and curriculum development

You may sign up as an individual or as a group. We encourage student groups to utilize CityDays as a pre-planned day of service.

CityDays unites us across the MIT campus and engages us with the larger community.
