Get Involved

West End House is a vibrant community that welcomes children, teens, families, alumni, and volunteers year-round. Your involvement strengthens West End House, contributing to an engaging and dynamic environment that puts every young person on the path to success. We offer a variety of ways to get involved at our Clubhouse and beyond:


We proudly offer high quality after-school and full-day summer programming for youth ages 8 to 18 and college and career coaching for young adults ages 18-24. Although COVID restrictions have eased, we have prioritized returning club members for enrollment. As always, there are no residency restrictions, family income guidelines, or minimum GPA qualifications. Learn more about our current programs here


Volunteers play a critical role in supporting our programs. Historically, we welcome more than 100 individual volunteers annually, and offer service day opportunities to numerous corporate groups. During COVID, we launched our Family Food Program, which would not be possible without the generous efforts of our food delivery volunteers.  Learn More 


Generous donors make it possible for West End House programs to have a deep and far-reaching impact on our community. Private support accounts for approximately 90% of West End House’s annual budget. Learn how your support transforms the lives of Boston young people here.
