The CUNY Service Corps is a CUNY-wide initiative where students can engage in meaningful service experiences throughout New York City, while building up their professional resume and career networks, and get paid $12.00 per hour
for a commitment of 24 weeks during the academic year. With over 90 community partners, a peer cohort of over 800 CUNY students, and eight CUNY campuses participating in the program, your potential professional network and service projects are diverse and expansive!
The application for 2016-2017 will open in January 2016 and we encourage you to apply! The CUNY Service Corps focuses on the following four areas:
- A Healthier City: Corps members address important community and public health issues, such as chronic disease management, childhood obesity, lead poisoning prevention, infant mortality, violence prevention, nutrition, and food security.
- A More Resilient and Greener City: Corps members support projects related to improving the city’s built and green infrastructure and making it more resistant to storm-related damage.
- A Better Educated City: Corps members offer valuable supports to students of all ages, such as those in early childhood programs (and their families and caretakers), public middle and high school students, fellow CUNY students struggling with academic and personal challenges, and adult students learning English or preparing to take the High School Equivalency examination.
- An Economically Stronger City: Corps members focus on small business development, local budgeting, fundraising for nonprofits and community issues, financial literacy as well as helping eligible families to access tax credits in order to bolster the economic viability and success of distressed communities within the city.
