New York Cares Day for Schools Information

New York Cares Day for Schools is an annual day of service devoted to engaging community members in the revitalization of New York City public schools. On October 19, 2019, over a thousand volunteers worked together to make schools across the city brighter, cleaner, and more inviting places to learn.New York Cares is currently planning for New York Cares Day for Schools 2020 and will have more information about the day and school selection criteria by June 2020. Check back here for more information later this year. If your school is a current New York Cares Community Partner, you can request revitalization projects year-round here. If your school is not a current Community Partner, you can complete an additional opportunity request form to request that we post your volunteer opportunity on this page.
