Options for volunteering in our “New York campus”
Are you looking for ways to help New Yorkers in need? There are opportunities to volunteer both on campus and in the community through The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice, Campus Ministry, and Global Outreach.
In New York City, there are also many programs and organizations where students and faculty can get involved and make a difference. Here are a few options:
- New York Cares
After creating an account and attending an orientation, you can search volunteer opportunities throughout the city and find something catered to your interests and availability.
Do you love animals? Maybe you miss your pet from home? Bideawee is a local animal rescue where volunteers can assist with animal care or events.
- Food Bank for New York City
This organization provides opportunities to volunteer throughout the city, with several site locations close to campus. You can help fight hunger in New York City by preparing or serving meals, assisting at a food bank, or unpacking stock.
- Catholic Charities of New York
Attend an orientation and then start searching for opportunities that match your interests. Join the Junior Board if you are looking to attend member-only events and commit to volunteering and participating in meetings throughout the year.
- The Church of St. Paul the Apostle
Frequented by many Fordham students, this church is next door to the Lincoln Center campus. Volunteer opportunities include helping at the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen, the St. Paul Food Bank Pantry, and the St. Vincent De Paul Society.
