Volunteer in New York City

At NYXT.nyc, our goal is to help New Yorkers discover, connect, and engage with the community and provide viewers with the tools to live a more enriching life.

We believe that volunteering in New York City is one of the best ways to explore your neighborhood and build meaningful connections. With so many organizations calling New York City home, it can be a challenge to find the perfect opportunity to get involved and volunteer.

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.
