Volunteers & Careers

Join our team of dedicated professionals as a volunteer! We are looking for people who want to make a difference by supporting the 9/11 community and others who have been affected by mass violence and disasters.

VOICES seeks volunteers throughout the year to work with the full-time staff at our offices, as well as for special events including the annual Resilience Symposium and the annual Always Remember Gala. Though special skills are always welcome, the only requirement for volunteers is a desire to assist others and further our mission.
