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.

Through a focused citywide network of volunteer opportunities, we seek to connect our neighbors through community and service projects. Whether you’d like to volunteer with our Brown Bag Lunch Ministry, 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 partnerships 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!

New to volunteering with Trinity? 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. Read more about the background screening process here. 
     
    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.

  • Trauma-Informed Care Training. This training teaches participants how to recognize and acknowledge trauma and its prevalence, alongside awareness and sensitivity to its dynamics, in all aspects of engagement.

  • 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.

Contact us to get started with your background screening.

If you're interested in discussing an institutional partnership between your nonprofit or corporate organization and Trinity, email us at volunteer@trinitywallstreet.org with any questions.
