In Paint Club, students spend Tuesday through Friday afternoons and all day Saturday learning the basics of commercial painting while they paint warm, inviting colors in public areas of their school. In the process, students learn creative problem solving, leadership, and how to work as a team – important skills that are transferable to success in school, career, and life. Students are joined by corporate volunteers each Saturday who help get the larger pieces of the project completed and informally mentor students by engaging in high level conversations.

At the end of each school transformation, Publicolor inducts approximately 10 students per school into our paid apprenticeship program which offers a continuum of opportunities including college and career exposure workshops, weekly tutoring, work readiness training, and an intensive summer program built around literacy/math immersion through product design and entrepreneurship.
