Uni Project Staff 2015No time like the present! Meet other volunteers at a social event coming up soon on Tuesday, April 12. To get started, contact Leslie Davol.

Help us put the act of learning “on stage” in New York City public space. We’re looking for dynamic volunteers who want to be around books, art, and other educational materials, spend time outside, and connect with people from all walks of life in New York’s neighborhoods. We need help greeting the public, re-shelving books, reading aloud to kids, supervising our DRAW cart. Help us create a safe, welcoming environment for everyone. Language skills helpful. People skills essential. Join us!

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
