Volunteer Opportunity

Please join the New York Academy of Medicine, KaBoom, Odyssey House and NYC Strategic Alliance for Health Director Javier Lopez to build a playground for the children of Odyssey House located on 219 E. 121st Street (http://www.odysseyhouseinc.org/index.php?page=progrs_family). The playground will provide a safe, clean, and modern play space for children between the ages of two and six.

Building playgrounds for children in Harlem is a great opportunity to be a part of establishing something that is permanent for the neighborhoods we serve. This is our chance to show that we can come together to create change. Javier is asking all friends and colleagues of the NYC Strategic Alliance for Health to join him in the building of this new playground for the youth of the Harlem Community.

The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) is leading the charge of securing volunteers for the follow days:

·Become a volunteer for the Prep work event-Thursday October 7, 2010 (8am-1pm)

·Become a volunteer for the Build day event-Saturday October 9, 2010 (8am – 5pm)*

  • Please note that all persons participating in the Build Day Activity will be required to sign a waiver before participating! However, you should rest assured that safety is being closely monitored, and there is a fully staffed health center on site, just in case there are any mishaps.
  • All persons wishing to be a part of the NYAM group of volunteers should provide their names and contact emails and tele/cell phone numbers to:
