Thank you so very much for your willingness to volunteer for the Innocence Project in New York City. Please understand that we need volunteers who can help us in the office. If you’re not from the New York City metropolitan area, please visit the Innocence Network website where you’ll find organizations closer to you who would be very happy to have your help.

In addition, please know that we are fortunate enough to receive hundreds of volunteer applications each year, but we have only a limited number of needs. We hope you will fill out the application anyway, and if there is a volunteer project that matches your skills and interests, we will be happy to contact you. Please also visit our Take Action and Ways to Give page for other ideas on how you can support our cause!
