The beauty of our Vibrant Parks project in New York is that we get to visit and work in some of the most amazing parks in the world while impacting hundreds of young people.
During this 9-day experience, our volunteers will work with young people from deprived communities delivering a range of sports, lessons, and other activities.
The volunteer experiences we offer in New York are based on three key points:
- Volunteers having an amazing time and experiencing everything New York has to offer;
- Volunteers learning as much as they can about local history, culture and wildlife and soaking up the essence of the country;
- Supporting local communities and green spaces through engagement, education, and hands-on help.
All volunteers who go to New York have the chance to get involved in a wide range of different projects that will make a difference and contribute to a better life for young people across deprived communities.
You will have the chance to work in and visit some of the most popular urban parks of the city, including but not limited to – Central Park, High Line Park, Hudson River Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Bryant Park.
While in New York, there will also be plenty of time dedicated to sightseeing and we will make sure you will be able to experience this city to the fullest and enjoy all the attractions the city has to offer. From the Top of the Rock to the Statue of Liberty, passing through Little Italy and Chinatown, your time in New York will be full of discoveries and new friendships.
Our team will be travelling with a group of ambitious and motivated young people to New York on:
- 29 June – 7 July 2024
- 6 – 14 July 2024
- 17 – 25 August 2024
- 24 August – 1 September 2024
Don’t spend more time thinking! Grab this opportunity to help children from deprived communities, visit and immerse yourself in the New York culture, gain valuable work experience, and create amazing memories that will remain with you for the rest of your life.
