Volunteer With Us!

Saturday, August 26th
Harlem, 116th Street.

Between 2nd + 3rd Aves.

Two Volunteer Shifts:
Shift 1: 8AM to 1PM
Shift 2: Noon to 6PM

The third and final session of the summer is upon us! JungleGym 2017 will be held  on Saturday, August 26th. There will be two shifts: 8 AM to 1 PM and noon to 6 PM. Concrete Safaris is looking for volunteers to help with the building and dismantling of obstacles, safety management along the obstacle course as well as event registration.

JungleGym is a 2-block long, 20-obstacle challenge for children and their families, as well as an active living fair, on 3rd Ave. between 115th and 117th Street. We had a lot of fun volunteering at last year's JungleGym! We also recently held a workshop with students to develop the obstacle course for this year's JungleGym. Our volunteers led the workshop, working with students to build a scale model of the event site. We are absolutely excited to see the design come to life!

Our longtime partner, Concrete Safaris, a not-for-profit organization that promotes physical activity and environmental awareness for students, is hosting its annual JungleGym!
