Volunteer At YAI

Volunteers support YAI’s mission by taking part in established programming and events, as well as by creating new opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live, love, work, and learn. We have volunteer opportunities for individuals as well as corporate, community, and student groups.

Individual volunteers can visit the Individual Opportunities page for more information about established volunteer opportunities, creating your own volunteer programming, and how to get started. 

If your corporation wants to organize a volunteer event for your employees, YAI will work with your team to create a unique experience. Visit our Corporate Opportunities page to learn more.

To learn more about existing volunteer opportunities or to sign up to volunteer at a YAI event, visit our Event Opportunities page. 

For more information, contact our Volunteer department at volunteer [at] yai.org or 212.273.6551.
