Volunteer Opportunity (Car Free Earth Day)
Organization: NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) Art


NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) Art is seeking support from a large number of volunteers to assist with a new event being held along Broadway in Manhattan as part of Earth Day.

As part of the 2nd annual Car Free Earth Day, the NYC Department of Transportation, in partnership with its sister agencies, is organizing an event along Broadway on Saturday, April 22nd between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. The street will be closed to vehicular traffic and instead opened to pedestrians to traverse and explore freely without the intense noise, pollution and congestion experienced on an average day along Broadway. The City hopes to reduce car emissions and encourage the public to use alternate modes of transport to reach their destination while, at the same time, transforming Broadway from a thoroughfare into their destination for the day. DOT will offer unique, engaging, participatory programming within the plazas, in addition to a one block stretch between 28th and 29th streets, which will act as a connector between the Flatiron District and Herald Square.

The agency is currently looking for volunteers to assist with crowd control and event messaging along the route, in addition to support for programming partners with their workshops and demonstrations throughout the day. Volunteer shifts will be held from 9 am to 12:30 pm and 12:30 pm to 4 pm.
