Commonwealth Corps Mobile Programs Operations & Programming Assistants

Open Table and the Commonwealth Corps are partnering to provide two volunteers with internships critical to addressing hunger in our local area. Members will serve between August 17, 2020 and June 26, 2021.

The newly created service internship positions of Mobile Programs Operations Assistant and Programming Assistant will help Open Table fulfill our mission of addressing hunger by providing healthy food in a welcoming environment while respecting the dignity of those served. These positions will allow Open Table to bring our services to people unable to come to us.

The Commonwealth Corps is a state-funded service internship program administered by the Massachusetts Service Alliance. The program’s mission is to engage Massachusetts residents of all ages and backgrounds in direct service to strengthen communities, address critical needs, and increase volunteerism. Members will serve in a stipended capacity from 8/17/2020 – 6/26/2021. Benefits include a focus on member training and development, as well as a semi-monthly stipend, a completion award, an inspiring network of fellow members, and other benefits and supports.

In addition to providing direct service, Corps members build capacity, and recruit, organize and mobilize additional volunteers, thus creating a grass roots movement of volunteers dedicated to service and volunteerism.
