NY Stands with Puerto Rico Recovery and Rebuilding Initiative
Launched in April 2018, NYS will have mobilized 500+ SUNY and CUNY student volunteers and 100+ skilled labor volunteers by the end of the summer.
Student volunteers deploy for 2 weeks at a time and have the opportunity to earn college credits. Volunteers with the New York Building and Construction Trades deploy in 1 to 2 week waves throughout the summer.
With 90 homes restored and rebuilt as of mid-July, New York is on target to reach its goal of 150 homes renovated through the initiative.
