On Saturday, October 28th, 2017, City Year Chicago will host its annual Make a Difference Day service event. Community members and external volunteers will come together to help uplift and transform the Johnson School of Excellence in the North Lawndale community through physical service.
Volunteers will help create a more welcoming and positive school environment by completing projects that include painting inspirational and motivational murals, and enlivening functional spaces such as hallways and stairwells with color and school culture pieces.
Please join us in supporting the students, staff, and community members of Johnson and North Lawndale as we give back to Chicago, the city we love. All skill levels are invited to join, but volunteers should be at least 12 years of age.
Register here today! Registration will close when we reach volunteer capacity, so claim your spot now!
A light lunch will be provided. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle and snacks if you think you will need them. Please wear closed-toed shoes and clothes to paint in.
