With hundreds of volunteer projects each month, we have something for everyone. Choose from activities that address education, environmental issues, poverty, and more.
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!
Explore over 1,600 opportunities every month to take action in your community.
Sitting back and watching the same problems plague our community doesn’t cut it anymore.
As a New York Cares volunteer, you’ll be on the front lines of creating positive change in our city. Every day, we see disadvantaged teens go on to college, neglected community gardens restored, and recent immigrants speak their first English conversations. Together, we’re able to impact over 450,000 disadvantaged New Yorkers every year.
We believe that when we do something to spark change in our communities, that’s a step in the right direction. To get started, browse our opportunities below.
