Community Outreach Volunteer

Ever wanted to be right at the heart of the action while still doing something important to build stronger communities?

Seattle Center Foundation (SCF) is expanding its community outreach efforts to increase its presence at events held on the Seattle Center campus.  We have planned involvement throughout the year starting with having visitor’s booths at the Northwest Folklife in May and continuing through Bumbershoot over Labor Day Weekend.  SCF seeks volunteers to staff these outreach booths. Volunteers will interact with the public to explain Center events and programs and chat with visitors about the 50th Anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair which will be held in 2012.

Excellent communication/customer service skills combined with an interest in history, culture and visitor services.  Should be comfortable with public speaking, handling multiple/concurrent tasks, and have a keen interest in learning new information.  Strength to lift and carry materials weighing up to 25 pounds.  Able to assist in setting up tent booth and stand for long periods of time. Enthusiasm for Seattle Center Foundation, The Next Fifty and Seattle Center.

Time Commitment: 4-6 months, 2-3 events per month (number of days varies)
