Volunteers are the backbone of SAGE. Without volunteers, we wouldn't be able to offer many of the programs and services that are so important to enriching the lives of LGBT older people.

Volunteer Opportunities at SAGE

SAGE offers a variety of volunteer opportunities, including Friendly Visiting, Lend-a-Hand, event volunteering, clerical support, participation in a SAGE committees and other programs.

Interesting in Hearing More About Volunteering at SAGE?

The first step to becoming a SAGE volunteer is to attend a volunteer orientation. These are held on the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm at the Edie Windsor SAGE Center (305 7th Avenue, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10001). Advance registration is not required, but we recommend calling the front desk at 646-576-8669 to make sure that the orientation is not being held in a SAGE satellite office.

If you are not able to attend a volunteer orientation, please send an email with your name and contact information to or call Bertis Shankle-Reyes at (212) 741-3592. If the volunteer services you offer are in high demand, we may be able to arrange for an earlier orientation.

After you attend the volunteer orientation, you may be contacted for a one-on-one interview with a SAGE Community Services staff member, depending on the volunteering role you apply for and to answer any questions you may have. Some positions may allow you to jump right in and see if it is a fit with your skills and interests. Most volunteers will begin their service by responding to a volunteer opportunities email.
