Chapters New York
Welcome to the New York chapter of Young Ambassadors for Opportunity, a supporter of Opportunity International.
If you live in the New York area, we hope you'll join our team of young professionals passionate about changing the world through microfinance.
Our mission is twofold: to raise awareness about the life-changing power of microfinance in the New York community, and to raise funds for Opportunity International's transformational microfinance services around the world. We plan events all year round, and we hope you'll join us for them.
We’re excited to meet you!
- Become a Young Ambassador for Opportunity by funding at least one loan per year (giving $12/month) for an entrepreneur working her way out of poverty. This money is recycled again and again, creating sustainable change and transforming entire communities.
- Volunteer with the YAO-New York Leadership Team by planning an event, sharing Opportunity with your personal networks and coordinating our chapter's activities.
- Serve as a member of the YAO-New York Leadership Team. Our chapter is run by dedicated volunteers committed to our four focus areas: Education, Fundraising, Outreach and Community. We welcome new leaders to add their expertise and energy to our team, driving the activities of our chapter each year.
