Mission: To enhance the worldwide image of New York City and enrich the New York experience by connecting visitors with knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers.

Activities: Volunteer Greeters share their favorite neighborhoods and sites in New York City with visitors from around the world. Greeters are not tour guides - they are New Yorkers sharing their love for the city.

Benefits: Make new friends from all over the world. Show off the neighborhoods you know and love. If you speak a foreign language, here is your chance to practice it with native speakers. You will be able to promote a friendly, inviting and accessible image of New York City.

We are seeking volunteers to join our amazing corps of savvy New Yorkers who unveil the magic of our city to visitors.
