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 at one of 50 City agency and community-based organization (CBO) host sites for service terms lasting 10 months. Our members work to increase organizational capacity engage volunteers, and build sustainable volunteer initiatives that address the needs of New York City.
