Get Involved

Are you interested in improving the economic, educational, and social lives of women in Philadelphia? New Century Trust is always on the lookout for passionate and talented volunteers who want to contribute to the community.

Our volunteer opportunities are always evolving as the needs of the community and organization evolve. If you have an idea for a way to assist the organization beyond the opportunities here, please let us know. We love ideas!

Short Term Opportunities
Long Term Opportunities


If you love planning and coordinating events, we could use your help. We are always looking for great event ideas that help raise awareness about women's issues and women's history. And we love fundraisers!  (Time Commitment: 2 hours to 10 hours)

Focus Groups

Get a group of your best friends together and help us design the future at our historic 1307 Locust Street site. (Time Commitment: 2 hours to 5 hours)


What issues do Philadelphia women find most pressing? We aim to get 1000 surveys done by December! Can you help by distributing to women in your family, church, workplace? (Time commitment: flexible)


Making a longer term commitment enables you to make a bigger impact on NCT and the community it serves. The time commitment for these positions may vary based on the activity of the organization, but generally the committees meet once a month.

Currently we are recruiting for the following committees.

  • Nominating & Governance – assist the Board in developing sound policies and infrastructure

  • Communications & Marketing – help with branding, marketing, website, press, events

  • Financial Sustainability (fundraising and finance) – plan fundraisers

  • Facilities – help with the utilization and restoration of our historic building

  • Grants – review proposals from non-profits serving women and girls


Board of Directors
Once you have worked with us a bit, you may be interested in having a seat on the Board. We are looking for smart, strategic thinkers who can take the organization into the next era of its evolution.
