Do you love to Read? Be a Volunteer Reader (help with mail, books, magazines and bill paying)

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on September 10, 2013

Share your love of reading with a person who is blind in your community! MCB’s Volunteer Program, GIVE (Getting Involved in Volunteer Experiences), provides volunteers for legally blind residents across the Commonwealth. A GIVE volunteer provides one-on-one services, primarily in the consumer’s (the person you are helping) home. They might help their consumer by reading through their mail and household paperwork, assist with checkbook entries, or read a book or magazine aloud.

MCB seeks volunteers 18 and over in all of the cities and towns throughout Massachusetts. We offer a two-hour training session at our Boston office to prepare volunteers to assist consumers. Volunteer will complete an application and must agree to a CORI check.

Once those requirements are out of the way, we will work on matching you with a person who is blind in your community. Your time is flexible-you and your consumer will schedule your meeting times- weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or any mutually acceptable schedule. You can volunteer days, evenings or weekends. Volunteers are requested to commit to a minimum of three months.

Please reach out and GIVE today!
