Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Union Settlement Association is an on-the-ground resource for East Harlem residents of all ages and a strong advocate for the needs of underserved communities. Since opening our doors in 1895, Union Settlement has brought education, wellness, and community-building programs to the people of East Harlem--a neighborhood rich in culture and diversity that also is one of the lowest-income communities in New York City. By helping our neighbors realize their goals, we build the vitality and success of East Harlem.
