The New York City Service Fellowships offer a unique opportunity to obtain practical city government experience in the areas of volunteerism and community service at the city level. The centerpiece of this year-long fellowship is a work experience at NYC Service, the mayor’s program to engage more New Yorkers in volunteer service and direct those volunteers towards the greatest areas of need.
Fellows are paid a taxable stipend of $45,678 and receive a choice of paid health insurance plans. In addition to work placement, fellows will have the opportunity to support mayoral office events and participate in on-going professional development activities.
Applicants must be current college seniors or recent graduates no more than two years out of college and must have one year of service-related work experience. Fellows must participate in the program on a full-time basis for one calendar year. There are no citizenship restrictions, but fellows must be eligible to work full-time in the U.S. for a year.
The program encourages all students interested in public service to apply. Bilingual applicants should note these language skills in their applications.
