Volunteer Opportunities “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Gandhi

Volunteer Opportunities

ACLD’s Volunteer Program matches volunteers, both corporate and individual, with specific interests. From hosting holiday parties for residents in our Residential Program, to helping to refresh the gardens in our Day Program, volunteers perform priceless work in the pursuit of providing an enviable life for the children and adults ACLD supports.

Volunteers from the Philanthropy Network of New York, Leviton Manufacturing, Comcast Cares, Margolin Winer & Evens, LLP, Home Depot and PSEG have performed corporate projects on our Bethpage campus and residential program.

Get Started

If you are an individual with a specific interest or hobby that you would like to share with the people supported throughout ACLD or a company interested in a group volunteer day, please contact:
