"Working with UD students in SAT prep gives me a sense of accomplishment. There's nothing better than seeing a concept "click" - and you can actually see the light bulb lighting up behind their eyes. That positivity and pride is just infectious."
New York Cares UD Volunteer Since 2005
Volunteers are a consistent part of Urban Dove programs. The HiRisers program needs volunteers each year for its high school Youth Staff tutoring program. Tutors help Youth Staff in a variety of subjects during the school year, and have special sessions during Regents and Final Exam weeks. The College All-Stars program needs volunteers to help our seniors with their college applications. Students meet every other week with a volunteer, one-on-one to receive assistance. CAS also utilizes volunteers on Saturdays in partnership with New York Cares for our SAT prep class for Urban Dove juniors.
Additionally, our communications and development department needs volunteers to serve on various event committees to help raise awareness, funds and provide physical assistance during the events.
Based on encouraging young professionals to be philanthropically active, Urban Dove would like to start recruiting an Advisory Board for those who prove to be supportive and helpful.
