In July 2017, NYC Service released NYCivic Engagement: Neighborhood Volunteer Study and Plan, the culmination of a year-long study to better understand and promote civic engagement and volunteerism in New York City. Following this study, we launched the Neighborhood Volunteer Collaborative to help neighborhood nonprofits recruit and manage more volunteers, as well as access resources to serve more New Yorkers.

Benefits to Participating:

  • Tools/resources to grow your organization’s capacity to support volunteers
  • Collaborate and learn from neighborhood organizations facing similar issues
  • Space/time to develop new aspects of your volunteer strategy

Attend an upcoming neighborhood kickoff and take advantage of this FREE opportunity to strategize how to improve your volunteer programs. We will share resources to assist your organization, assess neighborhood volunteer needs, and brainstorm how NYC Service can support neighborhood volunteerism.

Can't make the kickoff? Join an info session to meet our team & learn how NYC Service can help you use volunteers to achieve your mission!
