Volunteer Opportunities

Day of Volunteers: This is our day of service; there are two different volunteer shifts for the day of the Walk. You and your group can either get involved with one or both of the opportunities. Shift A is from 12:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m., this shift is responsible for assisting staff in the set up of the Walk. Volunteer duties may include:

  • Unloading and Organizing Materials
  • Set up of tents and tables
  • Organize Walk Site for the event
  • Inflate Light The Night Balloons for Walkers
  • Set up activity areas for Walkers


Shift B is from 3:00 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. and this shift is responsible for the execution of the Walk. Volunteers will be working with staff to ensure that the Walk runs smoothly and the walkers are having a blast. Volunteer duties may include:

  • Unloading and Organizing Materials
  • Handing out participant shirts
  • Cheering on Walkers
  • Act as tent concierge for teams
  • Running games in the Kids Zone
  • Handing out food and beverages
  • Cleanup of the Walk Site


In office: The weeks leading up to the walks are some of the busiest in our office and without the support of volunteers the Walks would not be possible. There is the opportunity to set up an on going in office volunteer project or just coming when you can to help with specific projects (i.e. loading, unloading, and putting together materials).

In Kind Volunteers: In Kind volunteers are those who offer up their talents and services to help entertain our walkers. This is a great opportunity for bands, cheer groups, performers, and entertainers. Volunteers will be throughout the walk site performing and entertaining our walkers. This is a way to show your talents and make a difference doing what you enjoy the most.

Ideal Volunteers for Light The Night:

  • Friendly
  • Responsible
  • Organized
  • On Time
  • Accommodating
  • Mission Oriented
  • Ready to have a blast
