Volunteer in New York City

Why Volunteer?

Aside from the enormous impact that individuals can have on their community, volunteers themselves also benefit from getting involved. Volunteerism has been found to lengthen lifespan, reduce stress, improve mood, and reduce anxiety and depression among volunteers.
