New York City is home to some of the most promising students in the country, but many face serious obstacles on the road to college.That's why New York Cares offers a wide range of college access programs free of charge, such as SAT Prep, financial aid consulting, and help with college applications. We need more volunteers to meet the demand for these services and to help create brighter futures for NYC students. Sign up today at http://www.newyorkcares.org....
See what our Youth Service Clubs are up to throughout the year. We completed an amazing 265 projects during the 2008-2009 school year, and we'll be working with sixteen agencies this summer on even more projects, like painting murals, serving meals, sorting clothes, and revitalizing parks.
On New York Cares Day, 8,000 volunteers will paint a brighter future for New York City public school students.
We'll paint murals and classrooms, organize libraries, and brighten up playgrounds at more than 100 public schools -- work worth well over $1 million in service to the New York City public school system.
As we prepare for the event, our Annual Events team will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the projects we're planning at each site. Check back weekly for updates!
