Looking to show love and compassion this holiday season? I found this great website that helps you to find volunteering opportunities and/or find organizations that work for the greater good in New York City. Initiated in 2009 after Barack Obama encouraged more volunteerism in our country, New York City became the first “City of Service” and was followed by 200 more. They have a goal of getting more New Yorkers to be active volunteering citizens — a goal that spreads compassion and awareness.
Below are the most recent opportunities available in the NYC area:
|Communities & Neighbors||Education||Economic & Workforce Development|
|Health & Wellness||Environment||Emergency Preparedness & Response|
I also gathered websites where you can find volunteering opportunities in these other large U.S. cities:
|Los Angeles, CA
If you have more information on volunteering opportunities in your city email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit.
