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.

Coach a youth sports team!
We are always recruiting coaches for our seasonal programs! Hill House relies on volunteer coaches to teach young participants the basic skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and a love of all sports. Many children participate in our in-house leagues. Teams are offered one practice and one game per week for a 10 week league. Game schedules can be requested. Our soccer and baseball leagues will be held at the Teddy Ebersol's Red Sox Fields on the Esplanade, Clemente Field for NFL Flag Football, and at the Huntington Ave YMCA during the winter for basketball!
