Make a difference in Boston Chinatown with gifts of your time and talents.

CMS is a small lean organization that depends on many dedicated volunteers. Volunteers not only get the satisfaction of contributing to CMS's success, but they also make memories with friends and meet new people. 


Event Volunteers

CMS offers many ways to get involved.  These opportunities usually require 2 to 5 hours on the day of the event. 

  • CMS hosts multiple festivals in Chinatown each year. Volunteers set up tents and tables for the vendors, help and guide visitors, and clean up afterward.

  • At our Chinatown Fair Food events, volunteers prepare event venues, bag and hand out groceries, and organize volunteers' appreciation lunches.

Project Volunteers

CMS has many on-going projects such as keeping our website updated and helping businesses [link to business resources page]. We always welcome ideas and look for additional opportunities to improve our capabilities and to help Chinatown businesses and residents. A commitment of a few hours each month can help CMS solve administrative and technical problems.
