Special Event Volunteer

PROGRAM: Words Beats & Life Academy

REPORTS TO: Executive Director and Event Coordinator

PURPOSE: Words Beats & Life (WBL) is building a team of energetic and results-oriented volunteers. We need people to help us set up and operate our Chinatown Block Party series until August 16th. We provide games, face paint, performing artists, and so much more but we need volunteers to make sure everything goes smoothly!

About Words Beats & Life, Inc.

Founded in 2002, Words Beats & Life (WBL) transforms individuals and whole communities through the core elements of hip-hop culture. At the heart of all that we do is the belief that hip-hop can serve as the necessary filter between hope and despair for the youth of the District of Columbia. WBL accomplishes its goals through two main program areas—The Words Beats & Life Academy and The Cipher. The Words Beats & Life Academy is a pre-vocational, arts-based youth development program for youth and young adults. The Cipher is a growing resource for our ever-expanding network of hip-hop based organizations, which equips organizational leaders with the tools and experiences necessary to build sustainable communities. It is our organization’s larger mission to set a high standard in arts education and presentations for youth and emerging artists.
