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. We welcome group or individual volunteers.
Volunteer opportunities are available in several locations throughout all five boroughs. Volunteers must be 18 or older (or 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 for a one-time volunteer opportunity? We can utilize your skills and generosity. Whether it be a fundraising event or a program event, there are many opportunities.
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.
ADAPT Community Network is committed to developing and delivering innovative career readiness programming for students to foster mutually beneficial relationships that address the needs of an ever changing and diverse workforce.
We believe that an internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields. The people we support and our staff can help create a positive internship experience for all.
Internship opportunities are available for college credit in health and human service areas.
