Student Volunteer Community Services (SVCS) enhances our greatest natural resource: volunteers. As a recipient of the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, SVCS offers interested students an opportunity to provide assistance to the fashion industry, community, and the greater society in which we live. Clubs, independent students, faculty, and staff are welcome to tap into the information available regarding local organizations who are requesting volunteers.
SVCS sponsors a Volunteer Expo each fall to introduce interested volunteers to agencies in need of their services. The Children's Hope Foundation, United Cerebral Palsy Foundation, 7th on Sixth Productions, CFDA fashion shows, and Toys for Tots are just a few of the volunteer opportunities available.
Typically, Student Life sponsors Fashion Week sign-ups at the start of each semester, where students can volunteer to assist at New York Fashion Week shows. However, to ensure a safe and successful return to campus this fall; The Department of Student Life is unable to sponsor any events that occur outside of FIT's campus. Unfortunately, this includes volunteer opportunities. Therefore, Fashion Week sign-ups will not be taking place this semester.
We look forward to being able to connect our students with engaging service opportunities again soon! Please let us know if you have any other questions or need additional information.
