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.
Join this great organization to share a New Yorker's New York with people from around the globe. Take them on informal, unscripted walks through neighborhoods you know well and show them that "the big city" really can have a small-town charm. Greeters share personal stories and favorite spots.
Please note, those interested in this particular opportunity must serve a minimum of one day a month for at least four hours, that knowledge of a foreign language and familiarity with particular neighborhoods (especially Harlem and the Bronx) is helpful though not required, and that volunteers are required to both have access to email and a voicemail system or answering machine.
Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!
RSVP works with over 250 other partner organizations as well. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Attend one of our Learn and Link events or schedule a placement interview today!
**Please note: all RSVP volunteer opportunities are for individuals 55 and older; also, most assignments are with our partners located across the City**
