The New Youth Volunteer Guidebook

Volunteer New York!’s Youth Volunteer Guidebook is now a free interactive app made to help inspire youth to be local changemakers.

This guide highlights local nonprofits that offer youth and family-friendly volunteer opportunities throughout Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. The app makes it easy to find the right volunteer opportunity for youth sorted by age groups (for ages 13-18). As well as including volunteer resources, tips and videos, the all new youth guidebook is an extension of Volunteer New York!'s mission to inspire action and help all members of our community live up to their true potential.

If you're a parent or mentor that's tried to convince a youth to start researching volunteer opportunities, or why volunteer experience is great for their resume, and have watched them wait until the last minute to get the required service hours they need for certain requirements
let them know there's an easier way now to get started volunteering. And it's fun. And it's waiting in the app store.
