Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Tutor The City's Kids and Teens

Ever consider yourself a role model? As a tutor on one of these children’s education projects, you’ll do so much more than provide kids with some reassurance on their weekly homework assignments.

By taking interest in the life of a kid, our volunteers help build positive self-esteem in our city’s youth and give them the confidence to achieve their dreams.

More than 63,000 New Yorkers volunteered last year on projects in Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. If you see a challenge that is affecting your community, New York Cares offers volunteer opportunities where you can respond.
