ABOUT THIS INITIATIVE:
The goal of the NYC Service Website initiative is to manage and expand nyc.gov/service with increased functionality and search capabilities, and use technology to enable New Yorkers to more easily engage and contribute their time and talent.
ABOUT THE REGIONAL VOLUNTEER CENTER:
NYC Service is proud to be our area’s designated Regional Volunteer Center. This state-wide network is made up of organizations that are working together to achieve the following primary objectives during the next three years:
- Develop and expand a sustainable network of national and community service agencies that will provide services and resources to communities throughout New York State;
- Engage one million New Yorkers in active service in order to increase New York's volunteer rate to the current national average and help address our State’s most pressing needs;
- Deliver volunteer management training that will strengthen the capacity of non-profit agencies statewide and more strategically engage national service programs and volunteer resources as a solution to critical local problems; and
- Elevate the State Commission's capacity to implement its objectives statewide, capture regional and local volunteer statistics to full analyze the service landscape in New York, and increase the overall impact of skill-based volunteers to meet community needs.
