About the NYC Service Fellowship Program

The NYC Service Fellowship is a one-year program offered to recent graduates and provides a unique opportunity to obtain practical City government experience in the areas of volunteerism and service at the City level. 

The centerpiece of the program is a full-time professional work experience at NYC Service as Program/Initiative “Coordinators” working on the office’s national service programming, national service advocacy, volunteer strategy & development, volunteer capacity building, or public/private partnerships work. 

Length of Program

This is one-year program and it is focused on a full-time work experience. The 2018-2019 program year begins in August 2018.


NYC Service Coordinators in our program are paid a taxable stipend of $51,502 and receive a choice of paid health insurance plans (housing is not included).

Administrative Days

NYC Service Coordinators receive 12 “administrative days” (i.e. paid days off) during their time at NYC Service (one day for each month they work). Administrative days may be used as vacation, sick days, etc.


NYC Service Coordinators, in addition to meeting all other stated requirements (please see "Related Documents" on the left side of this page), must have one year of service-related work experience (national service or volunteer experience). Priority will be given to those who have completed a national service program, i.e. AmeriCorps State and National, VISTA, NCCC, etc.

If accepted in the NYC Service Fellowship Program, please note that you must be a City resident or become a City resident within 90 calendar days of the date of appointment.
