Street Sense Media is looking for Celebration Committee volunteers to plan and carry out our annual event (like the one from 2016 in the graphic above) highlighting the creative work of our vendors and raising support for the work of Street Sense Media. The event, which will take place in October 2021, helps Street Sense Media raise critical support of both friends and funds for our mission. During this fun and festive event, we'll showcase the work of our talented vendor-artists while sharing our mission and programs with current donors and the broader public.
The success of the event will be a team effort so being able to work successfully as part of a team, having good communication skills, and being highly task-orientated are useful. Members must also be willing to complete assignments between meetings. The work of the committee will be carried out in a collegial, fun, and social working environment. This opportunity provides volunteers with a chance to be creative and engaging while supporting our vendors and meaningful social justice work.
The event planning committee will meet on a regular basis leading up to October 2021 event. The time of day will be determined by the group, but past meetings have been in the evenings after normal business hours. There may also be some weekend meetings. Meetings may be held at or near the Street Sense Media headquarters, located a half block from the Metro Center metro station or virtually.
Many talents are needed on the committee. We need members with experience in event planning, public relations, fundraising, or marketing to newcomers eager to roll up their sleeves. "Can do" and "get the job done" attitudes are fantastic!
