Volunteer Opportunities

COVID-19 Caveat

We look forward to resuming our pre-COVID volunteer operations soon. We will provide updated information on this page, so please check in periodically. All volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and the seasonal flu, have a current PPD test, and pass a drug-screening test if you are planning to volunteer for more than 30 days.

If want to use your time, effort, and energy to make a difference in people’s lives, volunteering at Mount Sinai Brooklyn might be a good fit. Our volunteers play a key role in creating a compassionate healing environment for our patients, their families and other visitors, and our staff. We welcome high schoolers above 15 years of age, retirees—and everyone in between. Volunteers help in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

As a volunteer at Mount Sinai Brooklyn, you also gain valuable health care and career experience. Perhaps most important, you know you are providing essential support to people who really need it. Our volunteers tell us they find the experience very rewarding.  

We pride ourselves in our ability to recruit volunteers who have a high level of customer service and commitment to Mount Sinai Brooklyn. We look for people who want to make a difference in our community.

You can also focus on specific types of care, including:
