Volunteering
Every Person in New York

It's organized by categories to help you pinpoint your interests, though some organizations cast broader nets than their particular category. Finally, a good place to start is with the 'umbrella' organizations at the bottom of the page, which enable you to choose from among hundreds of volunteer opportunities in the city.
