Volunteer at Pajama Program
Our vast network of volunteers across the nation play a critical role in our mission. Our work would not be possible without the generous and dedicated individuals who give their time and talents to support the children of Pajama Program.

Common Types of Volunteers
Storytime Plus Volunteers
The caring and compassionate volunteers at our New York City and Atlanta Centers model a key part of a comforting bedtime routine by sharing stories with children during Storytime Plus. We aim to have a 3:1 volunteer to child ratio at every Storytime Plus session.
***Volunteers Needed for Storytime Plus in
New York City and Atlanta Centers!***
Volunteers may also fold, organize, and sort the many pajamas and books our Centers receive. These volunteers save our staff from hours of work and allow us to dedicate more of our energy and skills to our mission.
Chapter Presidents are lead volunteers who promote and carry out our mission in their local communities. Learn more about our Local Chapters.
