Community Volunteering

Community Volunteering

Community Volunteering is for individuals, small groups, student groups, community organizations, and everyone in between who want to get involved! Whether it is reading a book aloud to a classroom of students, creating content for our Digital Resource Library, or providing extra hands in an After School program, our community volunteers make a direct impact on the lives of New York City's kids!
