Description

The mission of the Commonwealth Corps service internship program is to engage Massachusetts residents of all ages and backgrounds in direct service to rebuild communities and address unmet community needs. The Commonwealth Corps provides opportunities for skill building, leadership development, and encourages and enhances a lifelong civic vocation for Corps members. Corps members provide direct service, build capacity, and recruit, organize and mobilize additional volunteers, thus building a grassroots movement of volunteers dedicated to service.

Commonwealth Corps members serve for 10.5 months in a full-time or half-time capacity at one of 16 Host Site Partners in the areas of Economic Opportunity/Workforce Development, Education, Health & Nutrition, or Youth Development/Youth Violence Prevention.

What all Corps Members have in common is a desire to put their talents and ideas to use in the service of their communities and the Commonwealth. Although members connect across the Massachusetts as part of a statewide Corps, each host site has different roles and goals for its members.
