Become a Volunteer

There is no greater way to shape the future than by investing your time and talents into the community.


My name is Patunia Medy and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for the Town of Hamden’s, Hamden Youth Services Bureau (HYSB).

Hamden Youth Services Bureau provides a Volunteer and Community Service program that places students and community members who wish to volunteer in the Hamden community. We are hoping to seek, create and foster opportunities for all Hamden youth and their families to learn and grow in positive ways by providing a variety of programs and services. In order to do this, we are looking for assistance from all individuals, clubs, organizations, colleges, universities, and public schools- ages 12 years and older. 

Some of volunteers have been from:

  • Hamden Middle and High School
  • Yale University
  • Quinnipiac University
  • Southern Connecticut State University
  • Community Members
  • The Children’s Center of Hamden and more.

If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering that is caring, responsible, reliable, and wants to help the Hamden Community, please have them submit their applications to See below for forms. If you have any questions, please contact me at 203-777-2610 ext.1124

After receiving your application, I will then set up an appointment/interview with you (and a parent/guardian if under 18) to discuss potential placements according to your interests, talents, and available time, as well as what volunteer opportunities are available in the Hamden community.


We are also looking for local businesses / organizations who would be interested in utilizing this service. If you are willing to work with us and offer your facility as a future site where we can place our individuals please do not hesitate to contact me. See below for form.
