TeamMets is a community volunteerism initiative that uses the appeal of the Mets and their players to encourage fans to join the team in helping others. Through the participation of Mets Ownership, players, front office and staff, the team will collectively - and individually - participate in community volunteerism tied to the TeamMets platform. In addition, the Mets produced a series of public service announcements that aired and will continue to air in Mets broadcasts on SNY and CW11.
The Mets launched the first phase of this effort in conjunction with the Mayor's Volunteer Center of New York City (MVC) to inspire fans to lend a hand to community-based organizations. The MVC, a program of the Mayor's Community Affairs Unit, brings together individuals, corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations to connect people and facilitate meaningful volunteer opportunities that improve the quality of life in New York City. Its goal is to make every New Yorker a volunteer. Throughout the year, the Mayor's Volunteer Center promotes and organizes thousands of volunteer opportunities in partnership with community organizations and non-profits in all five boroughs.
There are many levels of volunteerism, whether it's a visit to your local senior center, library or elementary school or joining one of the many non-profit service organizations located in New York City. The Mayor's Volunteer Center of New York has access to more than 700 non-profit organizations. To find out more about the variety of ways in which you can serve, contact The Mayor's Volunteer Center of New York City by logging onto nyc.gov/volunteer
