Spring is Here!
With the arrival of springtime comes a busy time for TSC. Our programs are recruiting for new participants (visit our Program pages for more information), new partnerships are being developed and VolunteerWNY is kicking off its service to community partners that are combating Homelessness in WNY. We are very excited to welcome the nicer weather and enjoy all of the places within walking distance of our downtown location!

TSC creates opportunities for all individuals to serve their communities, challenging them to turn their ideals into action and their passion into positive change. Through transformational service and civic responsibility, TSC is designing a sustainable future for our nation’s communities. As an independent non-profit organization, TSC has been recognized as a community leader with the capacity to identify/address community needs through direct service.
TSC is built on an infrastructure of responsible grant stewardship of Corporation for National and Community Service and other federal funds, producing countless quality programs involved in transformational service. In 2013, the most recent full program year, 328 AmeriCorps members served Western and Central NYS. These members served 428,710 hours at 113 non-profit organizations/schools, achieving an impressive list of accomplishments including: 36,857 volunteers recruited who provided 370,547 hours of community service; 25,989 children in communities-in-need were served; and, over $3.3 Million in cash and in-kind resources were raised. TSC also has a formidable history in the creation/implementation of successful and innovative national service programs. TSC seamlessly continues its provision of national service programs to WNY, overseeing, on average, five national service programs annually. Currently, we operate two AmeriCorps State programs, an AmeriCorps VISTA program and a YouthBuild Program.
