Welcome Volunteers      


Catholic Charities Junior Board

Who We Are

The Catholic Charities Junior Board is a fun group of passionate and philanthropic young professionals (ages 21-40) in New York. We support the work of Catholic Charities by serving both non-Catholic and Catholic members of our community in need. We work together to help cultivate the next generation of leaders committed to Catholic Charities and our Federation of 90 Agencies. Our members have gone on to join the Boards of Directors for Catholic Charities Community Services, Kennedy Children’s Center, Good Counsel, and more.

Volunteer With Us

Catholic Charities Junior Board members regularly volunteer with our Federation of 90 Agencies. Projects span from hosting a party at a senior citizens' residence, Meal packing on 9/11 Day, volunteering at our St. Nicholas Shopping Days, and more! 

Our signature volunteer event is Brown Bag Chef's

Because Catholic Charities works with so many different agencies, we regularly have a wide range of volunteer opportunities that extend beyond this as well.

Christmas in July Annual Benefit

The annual Junior Board Christmas in July Benefit supports the St. Nicholas Project. The St. Nicholas Project is a year-round initiative to help the most vulnerable families in New York City and neighboring communities. Each year Catholic Charities provides thousands of New Yorkers with winter necessities for a more joyous holiday season.

Social Events and Partnerships

Junior Board members also have opportunities to network, socialize and strengthen their Catholic faith. We host regular happy hours, and also support the efforts of our agencies' in their events as well (including the LSA Family Service Junior Board and the Catholic Guardian Services Associate Board).

We also partner with Catholic groups in New York so that Junior Board members can attend mass or other faith-based events as a group. We also offer a Gospel in Art tour at the Met of Catholic art influences every year.


Each year we encourage our Junior Board members to adopt a family through the Catholic Charities Adopt-A-Family program. It brings happiness and fills important needs during the holidays to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Many New Yorkers don’t earn enough to pay for basic winter necessities like heat or warm clothes and as we all know; the holidays can stress already tight budgets.

Junior Board members and non-members are encouraged to learn more and sign up here.
