Corporate Volunteer Program

Dig in and make an impact!

Our Corporate Volunteer Program engages partner companies in and around Boston for days of impactful service on Cathleen Stone Island. All projects help to protect the safety and beauty of our 204-acre island classroom where our students explore, learn, and build critical life skills. Our volunteers are essential to the stewardship of our island and the wellbeing of our students and programs.

Volunteer days begin with a scenic ferry ride through the Boston Harbor, followed by your service project, lunch, and a guided walking tour of Cathleen Stone Island. Typical volunteer projects include trail and beach cleanup, facility and event venue maintenance, and stewardship of important historical and program sites across the island. Volunteers are led by a Cathleen Stone Island staff member for project guidance, and to provide further context and insight to the work and mission of Cathleen Stone Island Outward Bound.

Testimonial from Keishalee Shaw at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts!

“I’ve volunteered through the Cathleen Stone Island Outward Bound Corporate Volunteer Program at least seven times. I see volunteering as a way for me to give back to community, and as a way for me to get to know our community. Our company Service Day (on Cathleen Stone Island) has allowed me to meet associates from different parts of my organization that I do not normally work with it, and connect with them on a different level doing something outside of the traditional 8-hour workday!”

Thank You to Our 2023 Corporate Volunteers!
