Team Leaders truly make a difference in our community, as New York Cares Projects simply could not take place without them. By becoming a Team Leader, you join a group of New York City’s finest leadership volunteers. Team Leaders play a pivotal role in helping New York Cares mobilize more than 56,000 volunteers, to the benefit of 400,000 disadvantaged New Yorkers, thousands of animals, and hundreds of community spaces citywide every year. Being a Team Leader is also a terrific opportunity to work with great people, develop leadership skills, strengthen job applications, enhance your career, or simply to put your gifts to use. Team Leaders are also given the opportunity to take advantage of several enrichment opportunities throughout the year, such as workshops, networking events and an annual leadership conference and celebration.
