In addition to our Board of Directors, the NYCPCA has initiated a program to allow others in our community to get more involved!

These NYCPCA advisors will coordinate with the board or one of its committees to lead or support specific activities where we could use more help.

In some cases, the board will put out a call for advisors when there are specific needs we could use some help on. We also invite members to propose their own ideas on how to contribute to the group’s activities.

If you are interested in being an advisor and working more closely with the board, please email info@peacecorpsnyc.org and let us know what you have in mind and how many hours per week you think you’d be able to offer!

Open positions:

  • Content Editor: This person would work to update our website with new event listings, recaps, blog posts and updates to the homepage.
  • Video Editor: We’re looking for anyone in our community with some time and some video editing experience (and software) to assist on a video project we are planning to launch this fall.
