NYC Service Fellowship Program

Return to Fellowship Search

The NYC Service Fellowship is a one-year program offered to recent graduates no more than four years out of college and provides a unique opportunity to obtain practical City government experience in the areas of volunteerism and service at the City level. The centerpiece of the fellowship is a work experience at NYC Service. NYC Service is a division of the New York City Office of the Mayor with a mission to promote volunteerism, engage New Yorkers in service, build volunteer capacity and mobilize the power of volunteers and service year members to impact New York City’s greatest needs. Fellows are paid a taxable stipend and receive a choice of paid health insurance plans (housing is not included).
