Volunteer at North Cambridge
It takes a lot of different kinds of people to make Soccer Nights happen each year. Whether you are a skilled soccer player or a sports novice, a teacher or a chemist, a mother of five or a high school student, we have a place for you!
Soccer Nights is unique because its people are unique - each and everyone of them - and we believe that every person, regardless of age, background, interest, or ability, has something to offer our program to make it a thriving place for athletic skills to be honed, leadership skills to be developed, and city-wide unity to flourish so that our communities can thrive.
Come join us this summer in making this happen! We promise it will be an experience you'll never forget.
