Painting Gramercy Arts High School
March 21, 2009Free
Note: location has been updated to Manhattan!
When was the last time painting was fun! Here is your opportunity to have fun painting while making difference in two ways!
1. You beautify a school
2. You will be a role model to a kid with NO future commitment
Please join ‘Street Project’ and ‘Publicolor’ in painting Gramercy Arts High School. You will be matched with teenagers. You do NOT need to know anything about painting at all. We will teach everything you need to know.
This is a golden opportunity for both volunteers and students to share in an unforgettable and unique dialogue that we view as informal mentoring. Since we are teaching good work habits, we ask that you model excellent behavior and a strong work ethic with our students
We will provide lunch. However, in order to help defray the cost of lunch we ask that the volunteers donate $10 per person. Thanks in advance!
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. We will provide gloves for painting.
This project runs between 9:45am and 2:45pm including the lunch break!

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.
