Volunteers are needed throughout S:US’ programs to help meet the diverse needs of the thousands of New Yorkers we support every year.

Whether you are part of a team of volunteers or an individual volunteer, your talent and time are needed and much appreciated. Share your skills to create a garden, teach someone how to search for a job, lead a yoga class, or in other ways you can propose. All are essential to helping individuals lead full and enriched lives.

Team volunteer activities typically last half a day (3-4 hours), involve groups of 5-20 people, and take place year-round. From April through October, the majority of team projects support our Urban Farms program.

We are grateful to all our volunteers for supporting our community. Volunteers work alongside staff to provide additional support to the people we serve. From corporate groups and community-based organizations to individual contributors, we appreciate every single person who adds value to our work. Volunteers help wrap presents for our Holiday Gift Project, teach participants how to apply for jobs, lead yoga classes and other wellness events, work in the gardens with Urban Farms, and more. All these activities are essential to helping individuals and families served by S:US lead full and enriched lives.
