How Does E-Volunteering Work?

NYSA’s E-Volunteer program connects volunteers to our operations remotely. E-Volunteering offers many of the benefits gained from on-site volunteering, while having the extra advantage of fitting into one’s regular schedule without needing to physically attend meetings, presentations or update sessions. Through the Internet, contributing and giving back to a worthwhile cause, developing new skills, and making new connections are common benefits of E-Volunteering and for NYSA it’s a great opportunity to engage more people in our mission. And we’re pleased to provide you with letters of recommendation and accomplishment for your contributions to our mission.
