Welcome to Parent Volunteers NYC.

We are here to connect you to NYC public school parent volunteers who have stepped up to help other public school families in NYC. This is an all volunteer effort started by public school parents.

We have a volunteer corps of translators, interpreters and technology helpers.

If you are a parent in need of help, fill out the form indicating the kind of help you need.

If you need help with:

  • translation
  • interpretation
  • internet connection or
  • remote learning platform (like Google Classroom or Class DoJo, etc.),

and your child’s teacher is not able to help you, we will connect you to a volunteer who might be able to assist you.

Ask for help here

If you have a bad experience with one of our volunteers, please let us know immediately.


We will do our best to respond to your needs, provide the best assistance and protect your privacy.  However: 

1. We can’t guarantee that the volunteer will be able to resolve the issue or help you. We also cannot be responsible for volunteers that do not follow up with you. 2. We screen volunteers by checking a reference and with a brief orientation meeting, however we are not responsible for their behavior or misconduct.  3. We are not responsible for your privacy protection, however you are by no means required to provide your real name, the minimum we need is a working email address.With all that said, if you encounter any problem or have any concerns, we encourage you to contact us so that we can attempt to fix it.
