UPDATE DUE TO HURRICANE SANDY:
TEENSGIVING scheduled for Sun, Nov 4, has been postponed due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. The new date for TEENSGIVING will be posted shortly. Please contact Josh Hyman by email or 212.415.5614 for additional information.
Our city continues to need help, and we encourage you to reach out and volunteer. Please view this listing [PDF] for volunteer opportunities and contact your neighborhood shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, community centers, and religious organizations for additional opportunities.
The 92Y Teen Center will be creating volunteer opportunities for teens to participate in the re-building effort for our community and our city. Ongoing information will be posted on this site.
TEENSGIVING is an annual one-day-only event in which over 700 high school teenagers and 100 adult volunteers participate in different community service projects all throughout New York City.
Last year the teens joined with Adopt a US Soldier, Pediatric Cancer Foundation, LES Ecology Center, Make A Child Smile, Hearthstone Alzheimer Center, United Cerebral Palsy, Jamie Rose Center, Convenant House, A Tail At A Time, Women-In-Need, Partnership for Parks and the Abraham Residence (to name a few) in providing much-needed community assistance. This year will include much of the same!
Student volunteers earn 6 Hours of Community Service Credit for joining the effort.
Thanks to all who participated in past TEENSGIVING events, helping to make these events such a success!

*Note: Large Groups are encouraged but MUST be kept to 25 students or less AND forms must be submitted together. Multiple groups from the same schools/programs are also OK, however they too must be divided into groups of 25 or less.
