Volunteer and Internship Program Overview

Volunteers play an important role at Henry Street Settlement, helping us to provide enhanced services and maintain our facilities.

Each year more than 1,200 individuals participate in volunteer activities at Henry Street's 17 program sites. Volunteers come from all over the city and sometimes beyond. They are community members, corporate employees, young professionals, college students and parents.

Interns and individual volunteers who make a long-term commitment to Henry Street use their skills and expertise to support the Settlement’s mission. They may have the opportunity to learn new skills, fulfill community service requirements and earn college credit.

Mentors provide important guidance and support to college-bound and current college students to help our young adults successfully complete their education and attain their goals.

Corporate or group volunteers spend one day of service (three-hour minimum) engaged in activities that may include serving meals to seniors, supporting childhood education and helping to improve Henry Street’s facilities.
