Event Volunteers

During The Overnight, hundreds of Volunteers are needed at our Ceremony Site and at our Cheering Stations for support and encouragement. Volunteers at our Ceremony Site assist with a variety of tasks, including: participant check-in, set-up and breakdown, participant and traffic control, serving breakfast, and more. Licensed Medical Professionals, including those specializing in mental health, photographers, and ASL interpreters are always needed.


Overnight Office Volunteers

Help The Overnight Staff in the New York City office 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.
