Volunteer job descriptions
Shift times: 9:00 am – 11:00 am
This is the most important position and the one where we need the most help! This position requires a person at each intersection to help facilitate vendor set-up. At least 14 volunteers are needed! You will be responsible for making sure the proper vendors are entering on their assigned street and are setting up appropriately on the block itself. You will be in direct contact with the event organizer during the morning set-up process and will receive a clipboard with all the necessary information. You can enjoy the entire event after you have given back to your community!
Shift times: TBD
You will make sure all participants are following the rules of the road, as well as by answering any questions they may have about the route or activities. Crosswalk Angels are strategically placed along the route at main pedestrian crossing points to aid participants in crossing the streets safely.
Shift times: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm & 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Volunteer while having fun! Fun Squad volunteers will receive sidewalk chalk, hula hoops, bubbles, jump ropes and/or another fun activity for their station. Your main task is to help engage participants by adding creative drawings or facilitating a game at your intersection while asking event-goers to help out! This is a fun way to volunteer with a friend or family member!
Shift times: TBD
If you are a flexible, go-with-the-flow individual, Mystery Mob is for you! You are up for any task we give you. Mystery Mob volunteers are the heroes of the day who fill in major gaps and make sure everything runs smoothly. We ALWAYS need extra volunteers. Even if all positions are filled for the day, you can still sign up for a Mystery Mob and we’ll put you to work!
Shift times: 3:00 – 4:00 pm
We want to leave a good impression on the neighborhood and erase all traces of fun left behind (minus the awesome chalk art on the streets)! Volunteers are needed to pack up tents, chairs, pick up zones (games, and other materials), take bags off the meters and pick-up trash/recycling along the route after the event.
