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.

Foreign Language Speakers are currently a high priority for Big Apple Greeter. If you speak a second language we look forward to hearing from you
