Event Details

In celebration of the impact New York City's volunteers make, Volunteers Creating Change, the NYC Citizen Corps Council's sixth annual Disaster Volunteer Conference, will discuss how change originates with an idea, and how these ideas often have a tremendous impact before, during, and after an emergency on individuals, families, organizations, and communities.

Join us at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts in lower Manhattan for an evening to exchange ideas, enjoy dinner provided by The Salvation Army Greater New York Division beginning at 5:15 PM followed by an educational conference with fellow change makers at 6 PM.
