On behalf of the Long Island Chapter, we would like to thank you for your interest in joining our volunteer program. At the heart of so many events and programs, are the volunteers whose dedication, professionalism and attention to detail have helped us achieve great success.
Whether looking to volunteer one time or on an on-going basis, there are a variety of opportunities that we can match to your skills, interests and availability. The commitment and dedication of thousands of volunteers, like you, make a tremendous difference in the lives of people living with Multiple Sclerosis.
Our events and programs take planning. Join the behind the scenes crew at the office and help with event prep, data entry, phone calls, mailings or various administrative tasks.

Connect the dots in your community by identifying communication opportunities and distributing marketing materials. Be our local presence and keep multiple sclerosis on everyone's minds.
This ongoing opportunity is perfect for brushing up on your public speaking skills. You can represent the MS Society in the community, at health fairs, and at fundraising events to provide information about MS and Chapter activities. Stand out in the crowd and spread the word about multiple sclerosis.
Self-Help & Support Groups
People with MS, their families, friends and caregivers often need to get together in person to discuss concerns and experiences in an informal setting. Self-help group leaders plan and facilitate the meetings.
