Volunteer

A big part of Student Government is serving your campus and community.

When you attend the New York Student Government Training Conference, you can pitch in and help others before the conference starts.

ASGA suggests that you contact New York Cares to schedule a service activity for your Student Government on Thursday or Friday before the conference on Saturday.

Please note that this volunteer activity is optional, and is not part of the official ASGA conference.

New York Cares

New York Cares was founded by a group of friends who wanted to take action against the serious social issues that faced our city in the late 1980s. Finding few options to help, they created their own organization to address the problems from the ground up.

New York Cares is now the city’s leading volunteer organization, bringing vital volunteer support to thousands of nonprofit agencies, public schools, and other deserving organizations. Today’s volunteers share our founders’ vision that we all have a role to play in making our city a better place.

How We Work
Our staff works with partner organizations to identify their most pressing needs, creates projects to bridge the gaps, and recruits and deploys teams of volunteers to make a difference.

Our volunteer model is so successful that it sparked a national movement. More than 370 volunteer organizations, united under the umbrella of the Hands On Network/Points of Light Institute, have adopted this unique approach to service.

Our Programs
More than 62,000 people volunteer with us year after year because they know they make a real difference. Together, we help 400,000 disadvantaged New Yorkers.
