Do I have to be a member to participate?

Non-members can participate in NYLC events and webinars at the non-member price, other than special members-only events. In addition, free Subscriber accounts give you access to The Leader monthly e-newsletter and the Resource Center page. The  Service-Learning Connect online community and a wider range of resources are available only to members. Compare all options now.


Why am I getting a "no access" error message?

Most likely your type of membership does not include the particular feature you're trying to access. If you feel you're getting the page in error, please contact us.


If I joined before, why do I have to join again?

NYLC's membership program is all new as of Sept. 8, 2020. If you joined prior to that time, you have a legacy account and will be prompted to upgrade to one of the new membership types when you log in. (Upgrade by 12/31/20 for a discount on Individual memberships.) Or you may select a free Subscriber account.


When does my membership begin?

Memberships are on an annual basis beginning from the date your account is approved, so you have a full 12 months to take advantage of your benefits. (The process begins with registration, payment, payment processing, and then account approval. If you select the Bill Me option, your account will be on hold until payment is received. Watch your email for status updates.)
