The volunteers are a diverse corps of more than 300 New Yorkers from all walks of life representing many different neighborhoods in all five boroughs. The volunteers are about 50% men – 50% women, and we estimate that about 55% are working either full- or part-time.
Applicants are selected for their enthusiasm and knowledge of New York City, and whether they are a good match for our current needs in terms of foreign languages and neighborhoods. Volunteers are chosen without regard to race, color, creed, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status or disability.
After completing a lengthy application, selected individuals are interviewed and attend a mandatory three to four hour orientation session. Acceptance for becoming a Big Apple Greeter volunteer is not guaranteed.
