Volunteer Opportunities
Hill House is a wonderful place to donate time and talent. We rely heavily on volunteers throughout the calendar year. Volunteered time allows our organization to provide quality athletic and developmental programming, community events and outreach to children and families residing in Boston's downtown neighborhoods. We look forward to working with you to determine a volunteer opportunity that fits your lifestyle.
