About the initiative
The Professional Services initiative facilitates skills-based matches between professional volunteers and NYC nonprofits, with a focus on building organizations’ capacities in marketing, leadership and strategic HR, information technology and management
For the past three years, NYC Service has partnered with the Taproot Foundation’s Pro Bono Initiative to administer this program. Through our partnership, participating NYC non profits were granted professional pro bono volunteers to help increase their organizations’ capability.
This year, we are welcoming two additional partners to the initiative.
The National Executive Service Corps is a 501c3 nonprofit, professional services firm, that provides management consulting, executive search, and financial management services to NY non profits. NESC is committed to strengthening the management of nonprofit organizations so they can deliver more efficiently and effectively on their missions.
New York Cares has joined to provide volunteers with further, necessary management and technical support. Ultimately, this will allow non profits to best utilize volunteers' skill set where they need it most.
NYC Service is presently developing a new, more robust Professional Services Initiative. New Yorkers have a myriad of skills to offer, and strong skills-based programming is vital to addressing the needs of agencies and organizations across the city. Our partner organizations will recruit volunteers and organizations to ensure successful projects, as well as provide technical support and guidance to grantees.
