Center for Parents and Teachers
The Center for Parents and Teachers provides high-quality, low-cost workshops, training sessions, and forums for parents and teachers. Programs address topics relevant to children of all ages, from pre-school through high school. The organization also maintains a lending library of curriculum materials for early childhood teachers. Volunteers are needed to provide childcare in our fully equipped classroom during morning workshops for parents.
Concord-Carlisle Adult & Community Education (CCACE)
CCACE provides opportunities for lifelong learning to the citizens of the school district and surrounding towns. CCACE responds to community needs and interests, calling upon local people and organizations to develop and coordinate programs and services for children, adolescents and adults throughout the year—making schools available for extended-day educational use for Concord and Carlisle residents, and promoting and supporting school and town projects that cannot be funded or presented in traditional ways.
To volunteer, contact Court Booth, 978-318-1540, firstname.lastname@example.org

Mass211 is a state-wide initiative to provide a universal 2-1-1 telephone number for locating social services and volunteer opportunities. Callers have free access to health and human services information and referral, and are guided in navigating the complex and ever-growing maze of human service agencies and programs. By making services easier to access, 2-1-1 encourages prevention and fosters self-sufficiency. It also is hoped that it will reduce the number of non-emergency calls inappropriately made to 911.
