Cambridge School Volunteers is an independent, nonprofit organization founded in 1966 to foster the academic and personal success of Cambridge Public School students. CSV recruits, trains, and supports volunteers to work with students of all needs and levels, with a particular focus on underserved student populations who have had less access historically to the additional support we provide. Our work aligns with the academic and social and emotional objectives of the Cambridge Public Schools, as well as their equity and anti-racist initiatives. Each year, CSV brings approximately 900 volunteers to work in Cambridge’s 12 elementary schools, five upper schools, and one high school. These programs match more than 1,200 students for weekly one-to-one or small group work.
