Foster Grandparents

In collaboration with the Department of the Aging, Northside has 20 full time foster grandparents who work with our children in the classroom setting at all of our Head Start, Early Head Start and TECC programs.

Corporate Volunteer Days 

Northside Center also hosts various corporate volunteer days for companies from all over New York City. These include Neuberger Berman, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Jefferies, Fried Frank and many others. The company’s staff come and spend the day volunteering and interacting with our children and staff as they learn about giving back as well as the programs and services of Northside.

Pumpkin Painting

On this day close to Halloween our children and volunteers decorate pumpkins. It is an opportunity for our volunteers to interact with our children and staff while also enjoying a fun

arts project.

Holiday Gift Wrapping

During this event in December our volunteers wrap holiday gifts for our children. Last year Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge participated in this event.
