Founded in 1987, Street Project has been committed to serving as a place for volunteers to find various charitable projects that fit their schedules. The nonprofit organization is run entirely by volunteers and offers a wide range of projects for which volunteers are able to help out each week, each month, or just one day during the weekend. Street Project also hosts member socials that give volunteers a chance to meet and connect with other professionals in the area who are committed to helping the community. These socials include professionals from a wide range of industries such as education, architecture, and finance.

Currently, Street Project supports more than 10 projects around New York. In addition to Ronald McDonald House, Street Project works with Career Gear, a project that provides job advancement and retention coaching to low-income men looking for work. Street Project helps Career Gear by sorting through business clothing donations, preparing coaching and workshop areas, and managing the organization’s inventory. Street Project also aids Helping Hands by pairing volunteers up with students to help paint and refurbish public school buildings. With several other supported projects, Street Project provides links to each project so volunteers can better familiarize themselves with each organization’s goal.
