Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Because of the heat advisory for this weekend issued by NYC Emergency Management and the Health Department, select programming that may pose a risk to our volunteers and clients has been cancelled. Projects with partners who provide critical services will take place, but we encourage our volunteers to follow safety tips including drinking plenty of water and staying inside/out of the sun when possible. Please check your email for information on the status of specific projects. Thank you!

Additional Opportunities Form

Additional Opportunities is a page on the New York Cares website listing community volunteer opportunities in New York City, Westchester county, and Long Island. Agencies seeking volunteers may post opportunities free of charge. New York Cares does not manage these projects, and prospective volunteers will contact you directly via phone or email if interested in your opportunity. You are responsible for screening volunteers.

Additional Opportunities may be a good resource if:

  • We cannot assist you in our team-based Community Partner model.
  • If you are seeking individual rather than groups of volunteers, long-term, daytime or special events help.
  • You need volunteers within the next 8 weeks.

Since final posting space is limited to 100 words, please keep your description brief. To see examples of these postings please visit the Additional Opportunities page.

Please e-mail community.partners@newyorkcares.org if you have any questions.
