Team Leader Needed


Since 1987, New York Cares has been NYC's premier volunteer organization. We create opportunities for tens of thousands of caring New Yorkers to give their time each year to make an impact on the issues that matter to them most. New York Cares responds to our city's most pressing needs by reaching out to social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, and other deserving organizations, and mobilizing teams of volunteers to support the work of these Community Partners. Volunteers tutor children, work in food pantries and soup kitchens, provide free tax preparation, revitalize parks and gardens, and much more.
