Volunteers make vital contributions throughout our entire organization every day. In 2015, more than 600 VNSNY volunteers provided over 35,000 hours of services. In doing so, they made a positive impact on the lives of thousands of patients, including some of our must vulnerable children and their families, as well as homebound patients.
VNSNY’s volunteers help out with a wide range of activities, from data entry to knitting scarves and sweaters for our patients. They also share their time and talents with every department in our organization.
Some of the opportunities for volunteers include:
We take special care to match our volunteers’ interests and abilities with the needs of our patients and our organization. We provide the support and training necessary for you to have a rewarding experience.

Volunteers are the heart of our hospice program. They provide that extra level of care and comfort that makes all the difference to patients and families. Volunteering is uniquely challenging and rewarding work. To visit with patients, potential volunteers must attend a twelve-hour training. We offer trainings on weeknights and weekends to accommodate a variety of schedules.
A phone interview and pre-registration are required and help prospective volunteers understand the requirements for volunteering for our end-of-life care program. To get started, check out the training schedule and contact your borough’s Volunteer Manager.
