Since 1997, hundreds of AmeriCorps members have helped make NYC a cleaner, greener place to live.

Alongside our full-time staff, NYRP is also generously supported by AmeriCorps—a federally funded network of national service programs that engages more than 75,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet critical needs in communities throughout the nation. Our staff is nearly doubled by the support of dedicated AmeriCorps participants.

NYRP AmeriCorps program participants are involved in all aspects of the organization’s work – cleaning and maintaining public parkland and NYRP-owned community gardens throughout New York City. AmeriCorps members are typically recent high school or college graduates who are interested in engaging in meaningful work relating to the environment, the outdoors and the greening movement before progressing to further educational or employment opportunities.
