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

Be a Cares Day Role Model

In order to mobilize 4,000 volunteers to 50 schools on a single day, New York Cares needs leaders to make it all happen and to ensure that the hundreds of high-impact projects completed on the day come off without a hitch. Can you lead us in helping create a better future for NYC students?

BE A SITE CAPTAIN

Lead the charge as we raise funds for education programs and revitalize public schools. As a Site Captain, you’ll work closely with New York Cares staff to plan and execute this large day of service, alongside teams of volunteers. Site Captains receive detailed information about their site, an interactive training, and on-going support to ensure each school is given a caring touch and refreshed look. Sign up here!

BE A LEADER FOR AN EXISTING TEAM

Represent a borough-based group of individual volunteers by acting as their leader and communicating important information before, during, and after the event. As a Borough-Based Team Leader, you’ll manage about 30 volunteers, delegate tasks, and empower your team to make the biggest possible impact on the lives of NYC students. Sign up here!

BE A REGISTRATION LEADER

Welcome volunteer teams in the morning as a New York Cares ambassador by setting up registration, checking in teams, collecting donations, and handing out New York Cares Day for Schools t-shirts. End your day early after registration is complete, or stick around and join in the fun as a volunteer. Sign up here!
