Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other

Helping Hands

Helping Hands volunteers spend a couple of hours each month during the year on a variety of projects that support local school and student development programs. We partner with two NYC-based organizations - Publicolor and Change For Kids. Activities include refurbishing public school buildings through painting work and mentoring, as well as helping students throughout their academic year. These opportunities can be used to set a great example for the budding youth. Being a part of changing a student's learning environment can yield positive results beyond the imagination. You’ll bring together the school community and help make it even stronger.

Upcoming Events

Signup! Change For Kids - P.S. 142 Family Festival - Sat, 6/2/18

Students, families and the community will come together for a day of outdoor activities for P.S. 142's annual Family Festival. Join in on the fun and lend a hand at stations for arts and crafts, games and other activities. Volunteer responsibilities also include set up and clean up. Street Project will be partnering with Change For Kids for the event. Change For Kids is a non-profit that invests in NYC public elementary schools in under-served communities by bringing critical resources designed to prepare students for success in middle school and beyond. The organization enables students to discover their unique strengths and develop the confidence to achieve by creating inspiring learning environments, rich with educational opportunities.
