What Is WooServes?

WooServes Summer Youth Service Institute, a 6-week youth development program of the United Way of Central Massachusetts, connects youth ages 13-17 with volunteer opportunities in Greater Worcester. Volunteer projects help address community issues around health, food insecurity, youth education, access to outdoor recreation, and COVID-19 response.

WooServes is a signature program of the United Way of Central Massachusetts which has run for more than 10 years hosting dozens of teens each year.

The 2021 WooServes program will run from July 7th – August 13th. WooServes will follow all COVID-19 restrictions featuring mostly outside volunteer projects for safe distancing (weather permitting).

If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact Patricia Leary, Manager of Community Engagement & Women’s Initiative, at
