Sep 28, 2015

The Massachusetts Service Alliance, established in 1991, is a private, nonprofit organization that serves as the state commission on community service and volunteerism. Its mission is to catalyze the innovation and growth of service and volunteerism by creating partnerships that maximize resources, expertise, capacity, and impact.

Connect & Serve is a free web-based volunteer portal administered by MSA. The site is a valuable resource for individuals who wish to find fulfilling volunteer opportunities in their communities.Connect & Serve's user-friendly design has many features to:

  • search for opportunities that match your skills and interests;
  • search by impact area or zip code; and
  • receive alerts via e-mail about upcoming events and opportunities.

In support of our mission, MSA invests public and private funds in institutions and organizations; convenes and mobilizes individuals, nonprofits, corporations and government entities to link strategies related to service and volunteerism; builds capacity of programs and agencies through training and technical assistance; and advocates for the development and promotion of public policies and private initiatives that incorporate service and volunteerism as effective strategies to address community needs.
