Volunteer opportunity description

Interested in getting involved in your community? 

Need community service hours? Interested in being a part of an iconic New York City event?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions then come volunteer at Summer Streets, happening this August in New York City.


For three consecutive Saturday mornings, 6.9 miles of City streets (from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park along Park Avenue and connecting streets), will be temporarily closed to motor vehicles and open for the public to walk, bike, skate, run, play, climb, even zip line! Celebrate summer with free fitness classes, take part in family-fun activities, listen to live musical performances, and sample tasty summer treats.



Volunteers are needed for all three Summer Streets Saturdays, on August 3rd, 10th and 17th, to assist with marshalling the route, directing participants and helping thousands of New Yorkers enjoy Summer Streets - and you'll have a great time too!


Volunteer shifts are from 6:30am-10:30am, 10:00am-1:00pm OR 6:30am-1:00pm
