Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

New York Cares Day for Schools Information

Over the years, New York Cares Day for Schools has served as an annual day of service devoted to engaging community members in the revitalization of New York City public schools. Due to COVID-19, we will not be hosting New York Cares Day for Schools in 2020 as we are unable to send large volunteer groups into schools safely and in compliance with New York City regulations.

Instead, our new initiative, Stand with Students, will engage volunteers and supporters during the 2020-2021 school year. We hope to restart our revitalization efforts in schools as soon as it’s safe and appropriate to do so. If your school is a current New York Cares Community Partner, you can request revitalization projects year-round here. If your school is not a current Community Partner, you can complete an additional opportunity request form to request that we post your volunteer opportunity on this page.
