Volunteer for First Street Green / at First Park, 33 East First Street, NYC

Share and develop your skills as you work creatively, side by side with a group of community artists, architects and residents to support a new Art Park by providing sustainable programming for and with the community focusing on cultural and educational events involving all of the arts, while also serving as a public forum for ideas.

If you have planning, organizational, design, writing, computer, or other special skills, please let us know. You will be an integral part of our second season of programming cultural events, and the development of our organization’s identity. You may want to help to facilitate events, and meet with community groups that we partner with. You may also assist in creating temporary structures and installations.
