PR Street Crew Volunteer Committee

Thank you for your interest in joining the Writers & Books (WAB) family and advancing our mission to promote reading and writing as lifelong activities in Rochester and beyond. 

We strive to serve Rochester residents with public events and programs that spark conversations and celebrate the joys, as well as examine the challenges of living together in community. This is where the PR Street Crew comes in.  We need your help promoting Writers & Books’ opportunities in the neighborhoods you know and love.
