Volunteer

Join a team of nearly 15,000 caring and committed New Yorkers.

Every child needs the support of parents, school and community to succeed. Our volunteers are able to make a real difference in children’s lives and connect with their communities. Parent volunteers also receive educational strategies to use at home with their own children.

Programs range from pre-K to 12th grade and volunteers serve in schools near their home or workplace. Visit our programs page to learn more about opportunities to serve in elementary, middle and high schools.
