NYC Service

NYC Service was launched in April 2009 by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to promote volunteerism and civic engagement among New Yorkers.  Check out the website for NYC service opportunities.

New York Cares

New York Cares acts as a clearinghouse for hundreds of monthly service opportunities.  Volunteers must attend a short orientation and are then able to sign up for shifts whenever they are available.  New York Cares is a great way to get connected to the larger New York City service community and meet lots of new people!

City Limits

City Limits is an independent, investigative journalism organization that publishes in-depth reporting about civic affairs in New York City, and about the politics and policies that affect the nation’s urban agenda.  City is the city’s largest not-for-profit civic-focused news site that provides in-depth reporting, jobs, resources, and multimedia.  City Limits is published by the Community Service Society of New York, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Gotham Gazette

Gotham Gazette provides independent coverage of the important issues facing New York City and state and the policies and politics that shape life for the city’s 8 million residents.  The Gotham Gazette is published by the Citizens Union Foundation of the City of New York, a nonprofit research and education affiliate of a good-government group founded in 1897, which believes that a well-informed citizenry is essential to a healthy democracy.
