Hands On New York Day 2017
8:15 a.m.–2:00 p.m. | Off campus; transportation provided
Join more than 50 members of the Pace Community to participate in this city-wide day of caring to help make our city a cleaner and greener place to live. NYC’s Department of Parks and Recreation is the largest land owner in the city, yet it receives less than 1% of the city’s annual budget. Inevitably, many parks and gardens go without the care they need to remain healthy and safe places to gather. But you can help make a difference! Pace's team will be volunteering to help revitalize and beautify Coffey Park in Red Hook, Brooklyn by painting fences and benches, clearing out park space to create room for a children's garden, and more. Transportation and snacks will be provided. E-mail with any questions or for more information!

Following the test, he will go over the more challenging questions and offer tips and advice. All attendees will receive a one-week pass to the Online Resource Center, where they can continue to practice for the real LSAT.
