Trailblazers | Volunteering

You lead the way.

Hospital buildings can be confusing places. Add on the fear and concern that may accompany a Hospital visit and it may be difficult for patients or visitors to easily find their way around. As a Trailblazer, you will ease some of the stress with a cheerful and welcoming demeanor and by providing help with navigating their way through NYPBMH. You will provide clear verbal instructions and escort patients to different units, departments and sites as needed. You will also use direction sheets, maps and other resources to facilitate visits. Trailblazers play a key role in improving the NYPBMH experience for patients and visitors alike.

We would love to hear from you if you are: An effective communicator, give great attention to detail, enjoy providing excellent customer service, are cheerful and welcoming, can maintain a positive attitude, and have the ability to stand and walk for most of the shift

Minimum Commitment: One three-hour shift a week for a minimum of six months.

Times: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
