Get Involved

Lend your time, energy and skills to help all your fellow New Yorkers lead healthy lives.


As a Volunteer, you might get involved by:

  • Helping a student with their homework as a Big Brother/Big Sister — or take a teen to explore city activities — like Chelsea Piers, the Natural History Museum, or Shake Shack!
  • Assisting a clinic with organizing and scanning files, and helping new referrals.
  • Organizing a job skills workshop for adults.
  • Participating in our twice-a-year Mitzvah Days, where activities include arts and crafts, sports, and games

Whether you’re interested in a recurring opportunity or a one-time-only event, we have something that will fit your schedule and interests. Learn more or find a volunteer opportunity.


As a Donor, your funds help The Jewish Board maintain the highest level of care for all New Yorkers. Making a donation to the largest social services agency in New York State is also a way to celebrate a wedding or bar/bat mitzvah, or to honor a loved one’s memory. Make a donation today or learn about other ways to give.
