Become a Volunteer

If you have explored our website, you are now probably familiar with some of the ministries that are important to the Sisters of Charity of New York. Oftentimes, we can use help…sometimes for special events and sometimes over a longer period of time.

If you (our friends, relatives, sisters, associates, visitors) think that you would like to join us in serving those in need, please read about some of the opportunities that are currently available.

Please remember, even if you cannot help us directly, your prayers are always welcome.

We invite you to learn more about volunteering with the Sisters of Charity.

English as Second Language Classes

We’re in our fifth year of FREE evening English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classes at Mount Saint Vincent. Volunteers help students read and write English and improve everyday conversation skills. Prior teaching experience or second language skills not required. Training provided.

Those who volunteered with us have found it very satisfying to be conversation partners and tutors to the grateful students. Perhaps you’d like to volunteer for the program? You don’t have to be an educational professional or come to every session. We’ll give you any training you’ll need. Plus, there’s free parking on site.

If you’d like to help out, contact Eric Rosenbaum, at 718.549.9200 x 260 or
