The IRHC Service Committee is a group that defines itself as students who exude their civic duty to provide service and leadership opportunities for NYU students while creating meaningful relationships with the surrounding New York City community. The Service Committee is comprised of NYU residence hall leaders whose goal is to create community service opportunities for NYU’s residential students. The IRHC Service Committee provides an opportunity for you to develop your leadership capabilities, and most importantly have fun by giving back to the community.

The Service Committee is currently involved in several projects, such as:

Strive for College: This is a long term service initiative where NYU students get paired with local high school juniors and seniors and mentor them throughout their entire college application process. Students meet with their high school mentees on a weekly basis to complete the Strive curriculum.

Relay for Life: Each Spring, NYU students join with the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer. This overnight fundraising event aims at spreading the awareness of cancer prevention, treatments and cures, celebrate survivorship, and raise money for cancer research.

Day of Service: A day full of service in the fall and spring where NYU students participate in various volunteer projects to make a positive impact on their communities.
