The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York Junior Board introduces young professionals to the varied programs and works of Catholic Charities through volunteer opportunities, social gatherings, faith-based events and philanthropic support. The Junior Board helps cultivate the next generation of leaders committed to Catholic Charities and serving those in need in our community.


Our Year-Round Initiatives
Support the St. Nicholas Project


The Junior Board participates in activities throughout the year to support the St. Nicholas Project, a year-round initiative that provides nearly 4,000 individuals with warm clothing and household necessities annually during the Christmas season. This year, we hope to raise more than $300,000 for the St. Nicholas Project through our annual Junior Board Gala, membership campaign, and other fundraising efforts.

Through your membership and volunteer work, you make it possible for the St. Nicholas Project to thrive. As a thank you for your membership and dedication to Catholic Charities, we offer perks for each membership level.


For questions, please contact Jasmin Abbatiello by e-mail Jasmin.Abbatiello@archny.org or by phone, (646) 794-2439.

Our Signature Event Gala

The 7th Annual Catholic Charities Junior Board Gala was held on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at Battery Gardens.

This signature event benefits Catholic Charities St. Nicholas Project, a year-round initiative that provides help at Christmas and creates hope year-round for thousands of New Yorkers in need.  

Your support is greatly needed and will assist Catholic Charities in meeting our increased demands for help, because need has no season. 

Get Involved. Make a Difference.

Junior Board members are expected to:

  • Make a financial membership pledge (all pledges support the St. Nicholas Project)
  • Participate in volunteer opportunities worth 10-12 hours
  • Attend the annual Junior Board Gala
  • Attend both bi-annual general meetings – one in the Fall and one in the Spring of each year
