A prospective SENIOR volunteer must be 18 years or older and not in high school to be accepted into the Senior Volunteer Program.

To start the process, contact the Department of Volunteer Services to schedule an interview appointment. Call us on 516-663-2391 during office hours Monday through Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm.

Volunteer Placement

Each candidate is interviewed before being accepted as a volunteer. Volunteers are placed according to the current needs at NYU Winthrop Hospital, your availability, and program-specific requirements.

Before you start, you must complete the Volunteer Services onboarding process. This includes a background screening, medical clearance, proof of influenza vaccination (depending on the time of year), and other compliance documents. There is also an orientation session for all new volunteers.
