Are you interested in resuming your outdoor activities in Fall 2021? If so, volunteering might be a good way to start your “new normal” life after the pandemic. While the majority of New Yorkers have been vaccinated and the city is on the track of economic recovery, a lot of New Yorkers are still in need of social support.
NY de Volunteer is a non-profit organization started by a small group of Japanese Americans and their friends and its mission is “empowering the Japaense & American communities to become positive change makers through civic engagement and global leadership.” Their events are a great place to meet with like-minded Japanese and Americans, who explore ways to build strong Japanese and American communities in New York City.
