The NYC Service Bureau is a capacity building model for NYC city agencies to more effectively and efficiently carry out their priorities, and meet community needs by strategically engaging residents as volunteers. The Bureau’s goal is to increase and measure volunteer impact on the City’s greatest needs: Education, Economic Opportunity, Environment, Health and Emergency Management.
