Franklin Park Playstead Field
I have a great volunteer opportunity for the 2nd edition of a festive and fun summer event, taking place on Saturday, July 21st at Franklin Park in Boston.
This is our second-ever Tech Goes Home Summer Celebration – it’s fun for the whole family! Our Tech Goes Home community helps participants gain access to the skills, hardware, and access needed for 21st century success. 75% of our participants have household incomes under $20,000, and 45% have a primary language that is not English.
In prior years we have held a more formal graduation for students at Faneuil Hall. While nice, we received overwhelming feedback from graduates that they would prefer a family-friendly activity. Our 2017 Summer Celebration was a huge success and we are looking forward to an even bigger event in 2018. Our goal is to stay connected with graduates and encourage them to urge family and friends to sign up for free classes.
The event is from 10 AM to 12 PM (rain or shine!) and we are seeking volunteers for the 8 AM to 1:00 PM time period. If you cannot do that whole stretch of time, then we have a set-up shift (8 AM to 10:30 AM) and an event shift (9:30 AM to 1:00 PM).
Our biggest needs are event set-up help, welcoming guests, and assistance with our food table. We also have a few more specialized roles:
* people to help lead a fun BINGO game for guests
* Facepainters / facepainting line managers – beginners welcome
* Craft table helpers – no skills needed, except liking kids!
Bilingual (Spanish, Cape Verde Creole, Haitian Creole) a plus but not required! If you are interested or would like more information, please contact (Karin Turer, the event planner) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much 🙂
