The Fortune Society’s volunteers and interns support our mission and make valuable contributions to our work.
In response to COVID-19, most of our volunteer and internship opportunities are conducted remotely. Our service programs are offered Monday-Friday from 9-5 PM with a few opportunities on weekday evenings. We welcome applicants with justice involvement. Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years old.
In the application, you may choose up to three programs you would like to apply to and can add additional information about any other service interests you may have. It can take up to one month for us to review your application, and not all applicants will be contacted for an interview. All volunteers and interns must complete onboarding paperwork, online training and a volunteer orientation. Some programs require a background check and additional training.
The Fortune Society contracts with the City of New York and as such is required under Executive Order #74 to ensure that all in-person staff, volunteers and interns are either fully vaccinated or provide a weekly COVID PCR test.
We encourage you to keep checking our website for updates and new opportunities. Thank you for your interest in serving at The Fortune Society!
