In November 2018, New York City voters approved three ballot initiatives proposed by the 2018 Charter Revision Commission, one of them was the creation of the NYC Civic Engagement Commission. NYC CEC is committed to leading initiatives that strengthen democracy, empower New Yorkers to engage in their communities, and build trust in the city’s civic processes.
Volunteers are an important part of building community engagement, and we believe in developing volunteers into community leaders that are equipped with the skills to promote civic participation in a way that is responsive to the needs of our city’s diverse communities.
Our volunteers play an integral role in promoting and facilitating the Commission’s initiatives through education and outreach that connect New Yorkers to civic opportunities. We welcome you to explore the opportunities available
