Individual Volunteer

If you are an individual who wishes to volunteer, please apply here. Those individuals we dispatch to programs will be required to attend a brief training through Zoom to ensure everyone follows proper safety procedures. 

Group Volunteers

Parishes and groups of people are encouraged to form a "pod" of 4-5 volunteers that are willing to be dispatched in an area for certain tasks. These tasks could be unloading a shipment of food for a feeding program or preparing sandwiches for a program in need of help. Pods will be required to attend a brief training through Zoom to ensure everyone follows proper social distancing and safety procedures. Please apply here.

Our Mission

Episcopal Charities currently has 516 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 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.

If you are interested in volunteering or joining our Consultant Corps, please fill out the form below. If you have questions about volunteering, are a program who is in need of volunteers, or would like to bring a group to one of our programs, please contact Associate Director of Programs Emily Collie-Beard by email or phone at 212-932-7354.
