CALLING ALL SCALLYWAGS
We are looking for some brave souls to assist us at the Boynton Beach Haunted Pirate Fest and Mermaid Splash! We want this year’s event to be our most successful yet, but we absolutely cannot do it without YOU! This is a great opportunity to have fun and work behind-the-scenes at one of the hottest events in Boynton Beach.
Kids Zones: On the Art Wall children will color in a pirate themed mural. Volunteers will assist each participant and oversee the supplies. But wait, there is more…. we need Volunteers to monitor the Games in the Park. We also need fun-loving volunteers to assist with many unique interactive art activities organized by different area non-profits Volunteers will be in some sun and do some standing - but they are sure to have lots of fun!
Vendor Relations: Volunteers are our first line of support for the vendors. They assemble and distribute “Welcome Packets”, assist with load-in/load- out and serve as booth-sitters. This committee requires a full day commitment, lots of stamina, a winning smile and a helpful attitude.
Information Booths: Located at the east and west end of the site. Info booth volunteers are happy to answer any questions that visitors may have about the event. You will be distributing programs, brochures, and information about CRA projects and events. Missing children and lost persons are reunited here and this is as well also a drop off for all Lost and Found items.
Marketing and Social Media Ambassadors: Help us spread the word by offering these services: Social Media, Blogger and Promotions. Volunteers will pass out brochures, giveaways, hold signs promoting the event and answer questions for our guest. Volunteers will also support social media to help promote the Boynton Beach Haunted Pirate Fest & Mermaid Splash before, during and after the event. This job requires a creative mind and lots of enthusiasm.
Treasure Hunt: Volunteers will help organize the hunt by providing maps and answering any questions. This is located at the east end of the site. Patrons are eligible for prizes which they can redeem at this booth once they completed the Hunt.
Site Operations/Responders: This committee will oversee all internal aspects of Pirate Fest from inventory, signage, and parking to police, first-aid and information booths. All supplies, equipment and rentals are secured and distributed by this committee. If you are a problem solver, this is the committee for you.
Volunteer Committee: Use your people skills with our own volunteer group. During Pirate Fest, this committee will operate Volunteer Headquarters, help with volunteer training, set-up and often step in to help other committees when emergencies arise. You will be involved with volunteer recruitment and evaluation of the volunteer program. If you are upbeat and ready for anything, Volunteer Headquarters needs you!
For the love of your community, pirates, mermaids, and all things fun! Plus some sweet perks!
