Individual Volunteers

Individuals can apply to volunteer with one of our programs by creating an account on our Volunteer SiteNew volunteers must attend a virtual orientation session before being dispatched to programs to ensure everyone follows proper safety procedures. You can see some of our upcoming opportunities in the schedule below!

Volunteer Groups

Parishes and groups of people are encouraged to form a "pod" of 4-5 volunteers that are willing to be dispatched to a program in need. Pods will be required to attend a brief training through Zoom to ensure everyone follows proper social distancing and safety procedures. If you are interested in forming a pod, please email SK Doyle for more information.

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.

The Episcopal Charities Consultant Corps Program aims to match volunteers with specialized skills to programs that have a need for volunteers with experience and knowledge. These skills include communications, videography/photography, financial planning, knowledge of the law, writing skills, teaching, and more. Consultant Corps members are contracted on a volunteer basis to work with EC Grantee programs on a particular project.

If you’re interested in becoming a Consultant Corps Member with us, please reach out to SK Doyle at skdoyle@dioceseny.org or visit our VolunteerHub Site to get started as a volunteer.


If you are a program leader who would like to work with a Consultant Corps member, please fill out the proposal form below. We ask that programs have a clear project in mind to start with a Consultant. If you’re not sure how to answer these questions, or you’d like to chat about your idea, please reach out to SK!


Upon receipt of your form, we will contact you via email with next steps.
