East New York Middle School of Excellence with Publicolor
November 19, 2016Free
Please join ‘Street Project’ and ‘Publicolor’ in painting East New York Middle School of Excellence in Brooklyn.
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.

We will supply lunch as well. However, in order to help defray the cost of lunch we ask that the volunteers donate $12 per person (please bring cash).

University Soup Kitchen
University Soup Kitchen is Street Project's longest running volunteer opportunity. Volunteers serve a wholesome, freshly made meal each Saturday in a respectful atmosphere. The kitchen provides a welcoming place of respite for guests and offers vital social services to those in need.
Kids & Teens
Helping Hands provides two opportunities: 1) With Publicolor, volunteers are paired with middle and high school students to repaint and revitalize public school buildings. Or 2) volunteers can support Change for Kids’ mission to invest in NYC public elementary schools in underserved communities.
