Nelson Mandela International Day - Volunteer Interest Registration

 

Nelson Mandela International Day - Volunteer Interest Registration

This year, New York Cares is working with the South African Consulate General to make sure that is easy for everyone to inspire change during a week of service from July 17 – 21.
Below are 3 ways that you can take action by giving 67 minutes of your time or dedicating yourself to service year-round.
Option 1: Attend an Orientation hosted by the South African Consulate and learn about the work New York Cares does year-round. Sign up for this special session on July 17 (4PM - 5PM) at http://bit.ly/MandelaCares or see all upcoming sessions at http://bit.ly/NYCares_Orient
Option 2: If you are already a New York Cares volunteer, let us know you are volunteering for Nelson Mandela Day, by clicking the sign up button below and then signing up for one or more projects between July 17th and 21st at http://bit.ly/MandelaWeek.
Option 3: Join us on a Group Friendly project during the week of service. The South African Consulate will be leading several group opportunities during the service week that don’t require a special training. You can register for these by emailing alo-villarealb@dirco.gov.za.
For more information please contact Maggie Bernhard, maggie.bernhard@newyorkcares.org, 212.402.1108 or visit the consulate’s Nelson Mandela Day page at: http://www.southafrica-newyork.net/consulate/nelsonmandeladay.html.
Please note there is no project on 7/31. This is just a way to track interested volunteers.

Since 1987, New York Cares has been our city's premier volunteering organization. We create opportunities for tens of thousands of busy New Yorkers to give their time each year through fulfilling, flexibly-scheduled volunteer projects. New York Cares responds to our city's most acute needs by reaching out to social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, and other deserving organizations, and mobilizing teams of volunteers to help with their work. Volunteers tutor children, feed the hungry, assist people living with HIV/AIDS, revitalize community gardens, and much more.
