Opportunity Description: 

What is a “living street” anyway?  Well, it’s our idea of a street that is vibrant, safe, and full of people, for example: 

Streets for socializing and relaxing, Streets with safe space for everyone, Streets as green space, Streets as economic generators, Streets for people, Streets for community building. 

A living streets allows for people of all ages and abilities to be together, get to wherever they need to go, socialize, shop, have fun, and – of course – provides for transportation of many different types.  Afterall, streets are the most abundant form of public space that most cities have.  Why not make them enjoyable, beautiful places for all to enjoy over the course of their day-to-day lives?!?

LSA benefits tremendously from the time and energy put forth by our volunteers. We can always use your help whether it’s staffing one of our events, helping out with the coordination of our programs or campaigns, serving on a committee, taking photos, delivering flyers… the list goes on and on. In addition, we are always looking for specific skill sets, so please let us know if you possess any of the following:
