Project C.I.T.Y. provides safe and meaningful community service learning opportunities, while exploring pertinent issues through innovative and creative workshops. Originating from Project S.C.A.L.E. in 1996, it is currently a volunteer and community program that places youths, age 14-18, at various volunteer sites (educational, career-oriented or community based), including the YWCA of Queens.
Participants who volunteer for 100 hours or more will receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award, created by The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation in 2003. There are three different award levels—bronze, silver, and gold—based on the total number of volunteer hours.
