Desk Mates

We offer three sizes of desks to meet students needs. 

  • 18 inches deep x 24 inches wide x 26 inches tall

  • 18 inches deep x 24 inches wide x 30 inches tall

  • 18 inches deep x 30 inches wide x 30 inches tall 

      (for a wider work surface)

We are also offering single shelf bookshelves to fit on top of each desk. The bookshelves are also offered to builders in a ‘kit’ with all supplies and ready for construction. Kits are picked up from our designated pickup sites and completed items are returned to the VVMA workshop in Lexington.

Desk and bookshelf kits are available at a per-unit price.


Group desk-building events with Desk Mates leaders are arranged on an individual basis and can take place in a group’s home community or at a Desk Mates site. Delivery to a Desk Mates Community Partner or school is arranged through Volunteer Ventures.

Desk Mates, a program of Volunteer Ventures MA Inc., was developed to provide volunteer- built wooden desks at no cost to students who lack a personal study and learning space at home.
