About NY Tech Volunteer Corps
New Yorkers always step up to solve the city’s most pressing problems - our citizens are our most valuable resource in times of crisis. We know the power of community and the power of the tech ecosystem can provide to solve many problems nonprofits and small businesses face after disaster strikes. In response to the most recent, COVID-19, and in preparation for future disasters, NY Tech Alliance is tapping into its community of over 60,000 to assemble a volunteer force to respond and support these organizations and small businesses in their rebuilding efforts.
Create and maintain a volunteer service corps of tech professionals to respond to the immediate technology needs of nonprofits, community organizations, and qualifying small businesses as they rebuild in the wake of a disaster.
Engaging the New York tech community to build a better future for all!
In the wake of COVID-19, many nonprofits and small businesses are faced with unprecedented challenges. As the city begins to reopen and our focus shifts to recovery, many of these organizations and the services they provide are being deeply impacted. It is our goal to uncover their technology needs and match them with a team of tech volunteers to assess, design, and implement short and long-term tech solutions.
The NY Tech Volunteer Corps is supported by:
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
