Volunteers are an essential part of the Overnight community. Unlike Crew Members, they don't register for the event or spend the whole event night working. Instead, they contribute smaller periods of time both in the months leading up to and during the event itself.

During the Walk Weekends and for Special Events
We are always looking for Event Volunteers. Volunteer shifts are announced 6-8 weeks before the event weekend and jobs range from assisting with participant Check-In on Saturday afternoon to helping serve breakfast on Sunday morning. We also need medical specialty volunteers to assist with medical form review on Saturday afternoon.
Additionally, we will need volunteers for special events in our walk cities. Special events can include our Season Kick-Off, route flyering, info tabling, etc. Details will be posted as events are finalized.
Use the links above to sign up for the monthly newsletters to be among the first to receive the Event Volunteer Sign Up Form when it becomes available.
We believe that volunteering is an even better experience when done with friends and in groups. If you are looking for group volunteering opportunities, please contact us and we will work with you to match an opportunity to your need.
Help the Overnight staff with a variety of behind-the-scenes tasks that help make the event what it is. Opportunities include basic data entry, participant packet mailings, T-shirt mailings, etc.
Weekly volunteer nights will begin around March 2016 at the AFSP office at 120 Wall Street New York, NY on Wednesdays, 5-8 PM
