Volunteering is a wonderful way to help others, build relationships, and give back to the community. Our volunteers bring an array of unique talents and beneficial skills to our programs, fundraisers, and administrative offices. Whether reading to preschoolers, playing music with adults or helping us with special events, volunteers at ADAPT are a vital component to our success. If you are patient, compassionate, and ready to make a meaningful commitment, we welcome you to share that special side of yourself with the people we support.
Volunteer opportunities are available in several locations throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, and the Bronx. Volunteers must be age 18 and older (16 with working papers) in order to take part in our Volunteer Program.
Work with our adult recreation program (Evenings & Weekends), adult day programs, adult residential group Homes (evenings & weekends) or as an administrative office assistant (Office Hours).
Looking to bring a large group together for a volunteer effort? We welcome businesses, organizations, high schools, and universities to sponsor & host activities or events for children or adults receiving services at ADAPT. We can help provide and organize a meaningful volunteer day for your company or group. Help plant a garden, paint a residence or work on a special project with individuals. There are many ways to make your work day productive outside of the office. Help to sponsor a luncheon or a party for our individuals, an outdoor field day, dance, carnival, sponsor a visit from a petting zoo, an entertainer or artist, and more.
In addition to the rewards of volunteering, we offer unique benefits to dedicated volunteers. After volunteering a minimum of 50 hours, volunteers are eligible take some of the unique classes we offer through our training department, such as: Heartsaver CPR, Mindfulness Training, Basic Sign Language and Defensive Driving (which will save you money on your car insurance).
