From time to time I publish volunteering opportunities from the Boston Chapter of Gay for Good. G4G, as I like to refer to them, may be the perfect option for you if you’re looking to meet people or would like to volunteer but cannot commit to a particular charity. Each month, Gay For Good Boston selects a different non-profit to donate time for a community service project and they arrange all the logistics. There is no money required and anyone willing to give their time and energy are welcome, but note that most opportunities fill quickly.
If this sounds like a group you would like to learn more about, I encourage you to link here to join the organization. You will receive regular notifications about upcoming volunteering opportunities.
