The NYC Service Bureau Program is an internal volunteer capacity building model that equips city agency staff with volunteer management strategies to better carry out City priorities and meet community needs. NYC Service leads agency partners through the full program, which includes a volunteer program assessment, volunteer program development, program implementation and evaluation. The objective of the NYC Service Bureau program is to increase resident volunteer engagement that builds a City agency's capacity to better serve and reach New Yorkers.

NYC Service Bureau Grant is a one year program in which resident engagement staff from City agencies receive volunteer management training, plus funding of up to 50,000, to develop or expand a volunteer program within the agency. The NYC Service Bureau Grant program prioritizes City agency applicants that currently, or intend to, address OneNYC impact areas through volunteer strategy.
