Group Volunteer Opportunities


Planning a corporate team building day? Need a place to host your annual community service project? We offer fun, hands-on volunteering opportunities available for corporate groups, schools and clubs of all sizes. Whether it’s for community service, team-building, or just for fun – we would love to host you! Our 35,000 square ft. warehouse is located in Long Island City and is easily accessible by mass transit. Please see below for our group volunteer opportunities.


Companies engaged with Materials for the Arts are able to reach and demonstrate their commitment to art, education, and sustainability in New York City. We facilitate on and off-site volunteer projects for our corporate partners as well as provide tools for your company to become a material donor or run a successful donation drive. Your company can help us expand programs and services for schools and arts programs. To learn more, please see below:


We offer amazing opportunities for Schools, Universities, Service Fraternities and Clubs that are looking to get involved in giving back to the education and art community. For student groups under the age of 18, we ask that the size of the group be no more than 15 volunteers with at least 2 chaperones to supervise. Learn more about our school partnerships.


After a session of sorting and unpacking, we encourage volunteer groups to take a Team Building Workshop in our Education Center. The Education Center at Materials for the Arts offers workshops focused on creative reuse: making art with readily available materials in the MFTA warehouse. It’s a great way to bond and create a masterpiece for your group to display at the workplace, school or even at home! Learn more about our Team Building Workshops.
