Service Corps

CUNY Service Corps Service Day 2016, East New York Farms, Brooklyn

The CUNY Service Corps mobilizes CUNY students to work on projects that improve the short- and long-term civic; economic and environmental sustainability of New York City and of its residents and communities. Students who become Service Corps members make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-work experience, earning a wage ($13/hour), and where appropriate, receiving college credit. The Service Corps is more than an internship program: students are building professional skills while also engaged in work that addresses the city's most pressing needs. Both our students and the people they serve benefit from the program.

The program is organized around four thematic areas:

  • A Healthier City
  • A More Resilientand Greener City
  • A Better-Educated City
  • An Economically Stronger City


The Service Corps has the following goals for its members:

  • Increase sense of civic responsibility
  • Develop workplace skills
  • Maintain or improve academic and co-curricular engagement with CUNY
