Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Volunteers play an important role at Henry Street Settlement, helping us to enhance our program services and maintain our facilities.
Each year more than 1,500 individuals participate in volunteer activities at Henry Street’s 18 program sites.
Volunteers come from all over the city and sometimes beyond. They are community members, seniors, corporate employees, young professionals, college students and parents.
Corporate or group volunteers spend one day of service engaged in activities that may include supporting childhood education, facilitating mock interviews, leading special celebrations or helping to improve Henry Street’s facilities.
Individual volunteers who make a long-term or one-time commitment to Henry Street use their skills and expertise to support the Settlement’s mission. They may have the opportunity to share their expertise, learn new skills, and fulfill community service requirements.
