Open Door was founded by a group of volunteers in 1972, and volunteers remain a vital part of the Open Door culture today. Open Door Volunteers consistently demonstrate that when you help one person, you can strengthen an entire community.
Open Door offers long-term opportunities to volunteer as well as one-day events. We value the important partnerships of non-profits, businesses, schools, community groups and faith-based organizations. Volunteers must be over the age of 15.
If you have questions or would like further information please contact Jane Levy, Senior Manager of Volunteer Programs at 914-502-1468 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
