New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg recently announced the launch of a new website and a new focus and intention for the city’s residents and visitors: http://www.nycservice.org

The headline: “Everybody’s Got Something to Offer: Use Your Time, Passion, Skills, and Willingness to Help to Address New York City’s Most Pressing Needs”

You’ll find a searchable database to find the kind of work you are most intrigued by, from Red Cross Emergency Preparedness teams to being a bilingual tutor, from cleaning up parks to painting public murals or visiting housebound seniors. Search through the hundreds of opportunities by the dates you’d like to work , the type of work you want to spend your time doing, or search what is needed by the skills needed (most won’t require any particular training or experience). Just search it, and do it.
