As with any community event, volunteers play a tremendous role in coordinating and helping out with the Powell Street Festival, and it’s not too late to join in on the fun. Some opportunities listed on the website include:
– Children’s tent
– Stage crew
– Site crew
– Poster distribution
– And more!
Here’s how to get started:
– If you’re interested in volunteering for the festival for the first time, please email a completed volunteer application form (which can be found on the festival website) to Wentao at email@example.com.
– Returning volunteers are not required to fill out the form.
– Discuss shifts by emailing the address provided above or by calling the PSFS office at 604-739-9388.
The festival is coming up just around the corner, so be sure to fill out that volunteer application right away. For the lazy volunteer-wannabe’s Celine addressed in her article, Top 4 Excuses Why Students Don’t Volunteer, here is a great chance to get active and involved this summer. Remember, volunteering is a fantastic way to learn the fundamentals, so we leave with you one more piece of advice, just as Mr. Miyagi once taught young Daniel: “Wax on, wax off.”
