One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.
One of the best ways to make new friends and strengthen existing relationships is to commit to a shared activity together. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, especially if you are new to an area. Volunteering also strengthens your ties to the community and broadens your support network, exposing you to people with common interests, neighborhood resources, and fun and fulfilling activities.
New York Italians is a volunteer based non-profit organization. In order to self support and achieve our mission we welcome financial donations as well as social capital.
We are also always looking for volunteers with special skills to help make our non-profit run. We need graphic designers, public relations professionals, photographers and videographers, grant writers, event professionals. If you have a special skill you want to share, or a great fundraising/educational idea—please let us know.
