Create your own volunteer opportunity
Are you interested in giving back to New York City but don’t think you have the time to connect to a formal volunteer program?
Self-directed service can have an equally powerful impact, whether it’s organizing your child’s class to send care packages to troops overseas, educating your neighbors on preparing for an emergency or teaching everyone in your apartment building how to reduce the City’s carbon footprint.
The downloadable toolkits available here show you how you can contribute where the City’s needs are greatest: strengthening neighborhoods and helping neighbors in need, education, health, emergency preparedness and the environment. So download a toolkit and get started—and when you’re done, share your story with us so you can inspire other New Yorkers to give back!
