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!

Young Authors with Two Bridges


Young Authors with Two Bridges

We need YOU to team lead Young Authors at Two Bridges! Who knows!? The next J.K Rowling, Steven King, or Dr. Seuss might be among these young minds.

Volunteers help students in grades 3-8 discover the joys of creative writing by developing personal memoirs, poetry, short stories and more.

Students and volunteers receive a published compilation of their works at the end of the semester.
