Volunteer

At Trinity, we believe that we can be changemakers, together.

Join our team of volunteers to get closer to social justice issues and help build up our neighborhood of New York City by working with and for our community. While our buildings remain closed, our hearts are open, and there are opportunities to get involved as a volunteer online.

Through a focused citywide network of volunteer opportunities, we seek to connect our neighbors through community and service projects. Whether you’d like to participate in a service day, take to the streets in nonviolent resistance, or get involved with our partner organizations, we offer varying opportunities to make an impact.

Trinity fosters volunteer opportunities with nonprofit organizations that work with adults, youth, and families impacted by the criminal justice system and homelessness. We also cultivate relationships with corporate engagement programs throughout Lower Manhattan. Through these partnerships, Trinity works across sectors to build connections and respond to community needs.

Volunteers will work on solutions to community and city challenges by developing new skills and building relationships. Trinity welcomes participation from individuals, groups, families, and teens; we all have the power, wisdom, and experience to make a difference!

Trinity is committed to keeping our parish and community safe. We require participants to meet the following requirements before volunteering with us:

    Background Screening

    We seek to create a safe and welcoming space for all. Free background screenings are required for all volunteers, who may work closely with children, teens, and vulnerable adults. 

    Note: Volunteers participating in one-time or Service Day opportunities may not require background screenings. Email volunteer@trinitywallstreet.org with questions.

    Orientation Session

    To prepare participants for their volunteer experience, all volunteers are required to attend an orientation session facilitated by Trinity staff.

    We also offer additional training opportunities to enrich our volunteers:

    Safe Church Training

    This training teaches participants to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the behavior of sexual perpetrators, how to respond to those signs and behaviors when they are observed, and provides screening information to help stop abuse before it happens.

    Mental Health First Aid Training

    This training teaches participants about recovery and resiliency—the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well. Workshops will be offered weekly starting this spring and include programs for adults and youth in English and Spanish.

    MinistrySafe Sexual Abuse Awareness

    Trinity requires all participants who will have direct contact with minors to complete MinistrySafe Sexual Abuse Awareness training before participating in our volunteer program. This training is key in equipping staff members and volunteers to better understand the risk of child sexual abuse.
