Service Opportunities at a Glance
Virtual Volunteering Opportunities

Website -- Volunteer Opportunities by International Programs & Community Engagement

Service Opportunities at a Glance:

  • Short-Term Service: Whether it's a one-day event or a weekend project, these experiences provide a quick yet powerful way to make a tangible difference in your community, all while accommodating your time constraints.

  • Long-Term Service: If you're looking for a more immersive and sustained commitment to community service, long-term opportunities provide the chance to create lasting change. By committing to extended projects, you'll have the chance to effect lasting change, build meaningful relationships, and witness the profound transformation of communities over time.

  • Virtual Volunteering: Without needing to be on site, virtual volunteers can help organizations advance their missions. As highlighted by the United Nations Volunteer unit, “Volunteering online allows volunteers to develop their skills and take on new roles that their professional life may not necessarily provide. Organizations collaborate with people of different backgrounds from all over the world, and become part of a global online community of peers who all share the goal of advancing human development.”

Ready to Volunteer? Find your next volunteer opportunity through NYC Service or Points of Light! As you search, remember to read the specific details of each volunteer opportunity, including time commitments, locations, and requirements, to ensure it's the right fit for you.

  • NYC Service is a division of the Mayor’s Office that provides meaningful access, opportunity, and resources for communities to come together and answer the call to serve NYC.

  • Points of Light is the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. They connect individuals, business and nonprofit volunteer organizations to create change in the world.
