Working for New York Cares is something that all students should get into to make some cash but at the same time develop new skills that can benefit them in the long run

Great volunteer program
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 27, 2017
Did New York Cares as part of my community service requirement hours but it was very nice getting to volunteer at soup kitchens, coat drives, park clean ups, hospitals, schools, and everything else we were able to do. Highly recommend this program!

NYC is a non/profit organisation.
Its objective is to improve and educate.
I have volunteered for NYC for two years now and I have enjoyed every moment of time spent assisting them.
I volunteer my time by teaching English, helping with CV's and teaching older students computing. I also manage volunteers by organising them a well as students for ESOL English classes.
NYC Achieves significant results and a special place to work.
Pros
Staff assistance and organisation

Volunteer Basic Computer Trainer/Tax Preparer (Former Employee) –  New York City,February 18, 2017
New York Cares is a great agency to volunteer in numerous areas.The staff is very professional and skillful.They train you if needed and you always feel comfortable in performing your tasks. I loved working working during the tax season. Once you pass the IRS test, you are assigned to a location where you assist the community residents in preparing their taxes. It is such a rewarding feeling when you can prepare their taxes and see their faces when they are told they will be getting a refund from the government. The greatest part of the tax preparation is that you always have your work reviewed before it is submitted for processing. This process avoids incorrect tax preparation which is a good feeling at the end of the day.
Pros
Many different areas to volunteer
Cons
No monetary benefits.
