The primary activity of the Compton Initiative is the quarterly workday, when we match large numbers of volunteers with 20-25 prepared work sites. Each event includes painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, schools, churches and public spaces. To date, we’ve beautified over 573 homes, 372 buildings at 30 schools, 35 church buildings, 31 public spaces, 2 medical clinics and 134 murals. The workday starts with all 2,000 of our expected volunteers arriving at the rally location as early as 6:45am. Volunteers will sign or submit release waivers, receive name tags, then enjoy a light breakfast. The breakfast includes, coffee, muffins, fruit, yogurt and some other small items. After Breakfast, volunteers find their worksite on the poles. Local Compton leadership speakers will start the rally around 7:15am. By 7:45am, all 2,000 volunteers are sent out to 30 different worksites. The worksites includes painting, cleaning and building great relationships with other volunteers. Volunteers arrive at their assigned worksite by 8:00am. Volunteers work at their worksite until around noon. Then pizzas for lunch will be delivered. All supplies will be provided for the task on the worksite. Breakfast, lunch and the supplies will be provided for free. We ask that volunteers consider to make a donation to help support future Compton Workdays.
