Volunteer Groups & Outreach Programs in Need of Volunteers

If you are a group looking for service opportunities, or an EC Grantee in need of additional volunteers, please email us at ecvolunteers@dioceseny.org



If you have questions about volunteering, are a program that is in need of volunteers, or would like to bring a group to one of our programs, please contact us at ecvolunteers@dioceseny.org.



Episcopal Charities currently has more than 500 individual volunteers placed at sites throughout the Diocese and 32 members of our Consultant Corps, a group of volunteers with specialized skills who contract with programs in need of individuals with professional experience and knowledge.

In addition to regular volunteer site placement, we: 

  • hold an Annual Day of Service, where groups across the Diocese join together for a day of action, reflection, and community

  • host Advent Days of Service, during which volunteers assist our programs during one of their busiest times of year

  • gather together to discuss important social issues and their relationship to our communities through our Micah Series, and

  • train volunteers, site leaders, and consult with programs to provide quality experiences for all involved.
