Mission Statement

NYC Service promotes volunteerism, engages New Yorkers in service, builds volunteer capacity and mobilizes the power of volunteers to impact NYC’s greatest needs.

Description

NYC Service launched in April 2009 in response to President Obama's national call for volunteerism and a goal of engaging 100 million Americans in service by 2020. New York City was the first "City of Service" and since NYC Service launched five years ago, over 190 US cities have joined the Cities of Service network.

NYC Service is fulfilling its mission and its goals of promoting volunteerism for all New Yorkers and helping more New Yorkers connect to service opportunities more easily. NYC Service targets volunteers to address New York City’s greatest needs by mobilizing the power of volunteers to impact six areas: Strengthening Communities, Education Excellence, Economic and Workforce Development, Health and Well Being, Environment and Emergency Preparedness and Response. In addition to these six areas, NYC Service seeks to elevate Youth Volunteer Service as a leadership and development strategy for our city.

New Yorkers can find opportunities to serve their communities by visiting www.nyc.gov or by calling 311.
