Dates TBD: Painting Project at Non-profit Theatre Serving Homeless Children

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: The Actors Theatre Workshop, Inc.

The Actors Theatre Workshop ("ATW") is an award-winning non-profit theatre, community center and educational institution that teaches innovative educational techniques and theatre principles. Since 1990, ATW has flourished as an artistic leader in the field, producing educational programs and theatre productions that support individuals from all walks of life, from NYC homeless children and the elderly, to aspiring and professional theatre artists.

After the recent completion of a new HVAC system on our floor and in preparation for our flagship Builders of the New World program, which has educated over 2,500 NYC homeless youth, ATW is looking to repaint its lobby, kitchen, bathrooms, office and studio spaces in their 5000 square foot theater facility before its fall season of creative and community programming.

Spend the day at a professional theatre and get your hands dirty so that the children and adults who visit this space have a warm and orderly environment in which to perform, learn, and grow.


We will be completing this project in the late summer or early fall, dates pending our final fall production schedule. If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the RSVP form below and we will email you with dates and times when they are set.

We suspect the project will take place for a week sometime between August 15 and November 15, 2022.

What volunteers will do:

Prep spaces for painting. Repaint ceilings, wall and trim in the lobby. Perform other physical, organizational and administrative projects. Please wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
