Every year, individual, corporate and other community partners provide tens of thousands of hours of service to Volunteers of America so that we can more effectively impact the lives of the individuals and families we serve. Whether organizing a back-to-school drive, providing homework help, hosting holiday and birthday parties, planting gardens, or underwriting special events, every one of these contributions is important and tremendously appreciated.
For young people who want to engage in community service, Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack is especially relevant. In addition, as a service to the community, Volunteers of America makes available New York City Youth Contributing, a guide that lists nearly 80 nonprofits throughout the five boroughs that accept youth volunteers.
