Volunteer Open House
@NAG Office. 110 Kent Ave. 2nd Floor
[little brick building surrounded by East River State Park @ N8th]
Drop by and learn about the many ways you can volunteer to make change in the neighborhood
Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, but people also volunteer for their own skill development, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving. We like to think that we cover both angles over here in NAG-land. We like to work hard to make change in the hood, and we love to have fun while doing it! In short, we have a bevy of projects and events on the calendar and lots of ideas gestating in the inbox with something for everyone and plenty of different ways for you to help out.
But yeah, we need you to help out…
If you have every wanted to get involved in the neighborhood but weren’t quite sure what to do or how to match up projects with your skill set or weekly schedule, than this is the night for you! Arts Happenings, Taste Williamsburg, Williamsburg Walks, Northside Townhall, Loft Law outreach, fundraisers & benefit concerts, public forums, community gardens, and more need real volunteer muscle to become realities…
This will be an informal open house, meet n’ greet, beers n’ the office, type shindig. There will be organizers and board members from NAG ready to plug you into something amazing!
