West End House is a vibrant community that welcomes children, teens, parents, and volunteers after-school and on Saturdays 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:
Volunteers play a critical role in supporting our youth and staff each day. We welcome more than 100 individual volunteers annually, and more than 60 corporate groups spend a day of service at the West End House. We offer multiple volunteer engagement opportunities for individuals and corporate groups. Learn more here.
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.
We offer a wide range of programs for youth ages 7 to 20. Every child and teen is welcome to become a member—there are no residency restrictions, family income guidelines, or minimum GPA qualifications. Parents can learn more here about enrolling your child in our daily programs, and youth can explore our programs here.
