Aimore is a student organization under NYU Service that encourages students to volunteer weekly for a minimum of 2 hours to a non-profit/activity that caters towards a specific community. Teams of 5-7 students serve on different days depending on their availability, and the activities differ to diversify the experience.
In the past, Aimore has focused on homelessness. Two teams of 5-7 students have organized The Door's closet for runaway homeless youths while other two teams of 5~7 students have asked NYU students to donate mealswipes in order to distribute meals to homeless people around the campus.
The volunteering activities change semesterly depending on what social issue we focus on for the semester. For the Spring Semester of 2019, we are choosing to focus on working with children.
We have three shifts this semester:
Mondays: Making comforters for pets in shelters.
Saturdays: 2:00-4:00- Exercising with children with disabilities through KEEN
