NYC Service Website

The goal of the NYC Service website is to use technology to enable New Yorkers to more easily contribute their time and talent. Through ease of access and increased functionality, linkages and search capabilities, the NYC Service website will continue to expand volunteerism in New York City. NYC Service currently attracts nearly half a million unique visitors annually and has over 500 partner nonprofits and City agencies actively engaging potential volunteers. Our goals are to double website visitors and participating agencies and to dramatically grow volunteer registrations and connections to opportunities.

NYC Service Social Media

NYC Service social media channels connect New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities and to each other, inspire volunteers to address New York City’s greatest needs, elevate youth volunteer service, share capacity building resources with community organizations, and assist in impact measurement. NYC Service will expand our current audience of over 37,000 followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, employ LinkedIn to recruit skilled volunteers, and create comprehensive social media campaigns.

Regional Volunteer Center

 NYC Service is one of ten Regional Volunteer Centers (RVCs) across New York State. RVCs strive to increase volunteerism, promote service and measure the impact of volunteers across the region. Supported by NY State, NYC Service offers a wide range of volunteer management resources and capacity building trainings to nonprofit partners and additional resources on the NYC Service website.

Promotion Campaigns

NYC Volunteer Collabrative Network

NYC Service creates an open source, inclusive network and learning community for all volunteer -connecting and volunteer–utilizing organizations. We stimulate new strategies to promote volunteerism, including online and social media connections and crowd-resourcing.
