Teen Community Service Fair

Boston Area Community Service Fair Offers

Volunteer Opportunities for Teens

What: More than 1000 people are expected to attend the Third Annual TeenLife Boston Community Service Fair, designed to connect teens in grades 7-12 with more than 40 non-profit organizations that actively engage teen volunteers.

When: Sunday, February 7, 2010 from 12 noon – 4 p.m.

Where: Mall at Chestnut Hill, 199 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

The benefits of volunteerism include increased self-esteem, a feeling of being valued, the opportunity to meet new people, the acquisition of valuable new skills, and a lifetime of wonderful memories and experiences.


More than 40 non-profits organizations and 35 sponsors and supporting exhibitors that make the event possible. Exhibiting non-profits include The American Red Cross of Massachusetts Bay, ArtsBoston, Big Brother Big Sister Foundation, Boston Cares, City Year, Cradles to Crayons,, The Food Project, Museum of Science, Roots & Shoots, Tenacity, and others.

Entertainment will be provided throughout the afternoon by area high school a cappella groups, including performers from Norwood High School, BC High School, Nobles and Greenough, Roxbury Latin School, Belmont Hill School, Boston Latin School, Wayland High School, Brookline High School
