There are many great opportunities across the university for students to get involved in community service projects and civic engagement opportunities.
If you are interested in learning more about community service and civic engagement opportunities available from schools, student organizations, and other university offices, or if you would like to notify students of opportunities to participate in such activities, please email
The New School has partnered with Habitat for Humanity on one-day service trips in Brooklyn and Queens. We have assisted on new construction and continued recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy.
Held semi-annually in the spring and fall, New York Cares Day is a service initiative sponsored by New York Cares in which New Yorkers volunteer to paint and rehabilitate public schools or parks.
Students staff tables in lobbies of New School buildings or events to provide voter information and assist with voter registration. Volunteers must complete training through Student Development and Activities or the League of Women Voters.
Beginning in the fall, donation bins are placed in campus buildings to collect winter coats for those in need around New York City. Volunteers are needed to decorate and distribute bins and to collect, count, and deliver coats.
Working with New York Cares, The New School is paired with community organizations (schools, senior centers, youth centers) in New York City. Volunteers are needed to recruit gift givers and donors and coordinate, wrap, and deliver gifts.
