Helping Hands incorporates two types of volunteer opportunities related to school revitalization and mentoring.
About the Activity:
• Volunteers are paired with middle and high school students to repaint and revitalize public school buildings in New York City.
• Publicolor encourages volunteers to discuss their education and career with the students to help them plan for the future.
• The time you spend painting with the students allows you to make a personal connection. Volunteers also share a meal with the students.
This volunteer event is offered 2-3 times per year.
2. Change for Kids:
• Volunteers support a range of activities related to Change for Kids’ mission to invest in NYC public elementary schools in underserved communities by bringing critical resources designed to prepare students for success in middle school and beyond.
This volunteer event is offered on an ad hoc basis.
