Help us get the word out!
Our Spring classes are approaching, and we need your help to distribute our posters around the community. We’re seeking volunteers to poster in each of four sections of Providence: downtown, the east side, the south side and the west side.
Let us know which of these areas you’d like to tackle. We’ll give you all the necessary supplies: the posters, pins, tape, magnets, and a street map with key locations.
A few hours of your time can make a huge difference and postering is a fun way to learn about cool spots around town that you might not have noticed before!
