Join Our Team of Dedicated Volunteers
Do you want to become a part of a national movement helping people who live with mental illness? Do you want to contribute to real change in the mental health system? NAMI-NYC Metro volunteer programs are primarily for family members and people living with mental illness. However, we welcome applications from anyone who supports the mission and goals of NAMI.
Volunteering at NAMI-NYC Metro in most program areas requires specialized training and supervision by a staff member. Because of this, we ask for a one year commitment for most volunteer positions.
All new volunteers are provided an orientation to our programs, office space, staff, and the specific position to which s/he has been accepted. As a volunteer you will be asked to agree to a standard Confidentiality Agreement and volunteer contract, which outlines specific NAMI-NYC Metro policies and procedures.
