About NYC Civic Corps

NYC Civic Corps, an AmeriCorps program run by NYC Service, provides a key strategy to expand volunteerism in New York City by uniting a diverse group of professionals to serve full-time with partner organizations, working to increase organizational capacity to engage volunteers, and build sustainable volunteer initiatives.

These corps members will serve full time to build volunteer management systems and leverage 50,000 volunteers who address impact areas that are priorities of New York City and the nation, including disaster services, economic opportunity, education, and healthy futures. 

The 2016-2017 program began on September 6, 2016 and ends on July 14, 2017.
