About Volunteering and Interning at Safe Horizon
When and Where Can I Volunteer?
Safe Horizon sites are located throughout the five boroughs. Due to the confidentiality of our work, many of our client-facing opportunities for both individuals and groups are limited. Minimum commitment and hours vary depending upon the program.
What Types of Internship and Volunteer Opportunities Are There and When Are They Offered?
Volunteer and internship opportunities are a valuable way to get to know our programs and how our organization works. Many lifelong advocates and Safe Horizon staff in leadership positions began their journey as interns or volunteers. We are committed to fostering a culture of learning. Internship and volunteer opportunities are a great way to get involved.
Safe Horizon internships are unpaid, and availability varies throughout the year. Both graduate and undergraduate internships are available. Most internships begin in the Fall and end in the Spring.
Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year based on the needs of individual programs.
What is the Internship and Volunteer Application Process?
