Volunteer Opportunities


Become a Volunteer

Ready to start volunteering? Great! We would love to have you join our team of super volunteers. Before you can begin working with 826NYC, we ask that you attend an orientation to learn about our programs and sign a volunteer contract. Once you attend the orientation and pass a background check, you’ll begin receiving our volunteer newsletter detailing all our upcoming opportunities!

As an added bonus, all 826NYC volunteers receive a 40% discount at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.

To RSVP for an orientation and begin your volunteer application, just fill out this form! And if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to email our Volunteer and Programs Coordinator, Cutter Wood, at cutter@826nyc.org.
