Need volunteers to support your response to COVID-19?

We'd love to hear from you! Please feel out this form if you have identified a need for a volunteer project at your organization, school, or government agency.


OUR MODEL
  • New York Cares partners with 501(c)(3) organizations, public schools, and government agencies.
  • Each program is assigned a New York Cares staff member to manage the opportunity, along with a trained volunteer leader who is responsible for managing volunteers on-site. 
  • Projects are team-based and hands-on. With the exception of certain projects that have been modified for social distancing, we usually encourage teams of 5-20 volunteers. 
  • Volunteers are recruited from our existing base of over 52,000 volunteers. While volunteers can receive additional training as needed for a project, we are typically unable to recruit volunteers with specialized skill-sets like medical or case management experience.
  • Projects do not engage volunteers in fundraising, administrative, or clerical work. 
  • All partners sign a Partnership Agreement before we make opportunities available to our volunteers. 
  • Community Partners must agree to follow our current health and safety requirements. 


If you have identified multiple potential projects, please submit a form for each request. We will be processing requests as quickly as possible. The more information you provide us, the faster we can get back to you. 
 

Please note: We will be prioritizing in-person hunger-related programming, volunteer phone-banking needs, and virtual volunteering for remote learning and other activities. All in-person projects will need to meet our current safety and health requirements.
