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!

Swim Meet with NYC Parks Citywide Aquatics


Swim Meet with NYC Parks Citywide Aquatics

Support young swimmers (ages 6-18) as they compete against others from all five boroughs. Serve as official timekeepers for the races and maybe even see the next Michael Phelps. No knowledge of swimming is required. An orientation will be provided at the beginning of the shift. Bring a bagged lunch to enjoy and wear flip flops, as street shoes are not permitted on the pool decks.



Citywide Aquatics serves the public in all five boroughs of New York City, offering programs for tots, children, adults, seniors and people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Their mission is to improve quality of life through aquatic recreation, while promoting health, fitness, and safety awareness.
