The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
826NYC hosts writing field trips where classes of NYC public school students come into the center to write stories with our staff, volunteers, and one another. Field trips are always in need of enthusiastic volunteers to make the storytelling and writing experience come to life. We are always looking for new artists to live-illustrate our field trips, typists, and charismatic leaders to facilitate the writing process. If that's not your thing, or you're just more of the shy type, we'd love you to join our diligent behind-the-scenes printing and bookbinding team. Field trips take place weekday mornings at our Park Slope center, from 10:00am to 12:30pm.
