Employee Engagement

NYC STEP: Success Through Engaging Professionals

NYC STEP is a group mentoring program that matches working professionals—mentors—from companies across the City with groups of students—mentees—from the Department of Youth and Community Development's Learn & Earn programs to create lasting partnerships to empower students and professionals alike. The program was designed to provide college and career readiness during the calendar year bridging students’ junior and senior years of high school, leading to positive decision making, education achievements, and successful career/college options and life pathways. Many students lack access to professional mentors in their fields of interest. Through NYC STEP, we have coupled traditional career readiness with exposure to career professionals to create an experience that bridges the gap between high-impact, light-touch day of service mentoring events and the sustained commitment of traditional mentoring. NYC STEP will take place between March and June in a series of five, 1.5- to two-hour group mentoring sessions. Each session will be tied to specific learning objectives and teach valuable career and college-readiness skills

NYC Corporate Volunteer Council

The New York City Corporate Volunteer Council (NYCCVC) is a coalition of our business partners that meets quarterly to engage directly with City agencies on how public private partnerships can benefit their work and help support community needs as well as engage with one another to share volunteer opportunities and best practices in volunteerism. Our most recent meeting focused on the City’s asylum seeker response and the various ways the private sector can leverage their resources and employees to assist with relief efforts.

Maximizing Impact Through Collaborative Business and Community Partnership: A Toolkit for Small-Businesses & Corporate Partners

NYC Service’s newest corporate toolkit, Maximizing Impact Through Collaborative Business and Community Partnership, is available for download. The paths to meaningful and impactful community engagement are as broad and diverse as the New York City business community itself. This toolkit is designed to equip NYC-based corporations and businesses with resources to maximize their corporate social responsibility programming’s ability to address New York City’s greatest needs, with a focus on helping to improve the impact of employee volunteer programming.

In addition to providing a wealth of resources and tools, businesses will learn how to align their community engagement programming with company priorities, best practices for exploring and engaging with potential community partners, and finally how to evaluate and evolve their programming to better understand its impact on employees, partners, and the communities being served.
