Select an Orientation Session

New volunteers need to attend a quick and easy orientation session that will introduce them to New York Cares' year-round volunteer opportunities. We hold orientations several times a week in locations across the city. By attending any of the below orientations, you will be able to sign up for any New York Cares projects.

Please note: If you've already attended an orientation, you can go to our Search for Projects page to register for volunteer opportunities.
