Helping Hands - J.H.S. 144 Michelangelo with Publicolor

Please join 'Street Project' and 'Publicolor' in painting J.H.S. 144 Michelangelo in the Bronx. Publicolor aims to engage at-risk youth and improve their education by establishing and implementing design-based programs that use the power of color and collaboration to transform and revitalize institutional public spaces. You will be matched with a teenager and act as mentor for the day. No painting experience required. We will teach everything you need to know. Please wear painting clothes and shoes. We use odor-free latex paint that will wash out of your hair and skin but not out of your clothes. Gloves will also be provided. The project runs from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM (with an hour for lunch).

Please arrive by 9:15 AM for orientation.

J.H.S. 144 Michelangelo 2545 Gunther Ave, Bronx, NY 10469

Pubilcolor will provide lunch. To help defray the cost of lunch we ask that the volunteers donate $12 per person (cash).
