Cupertino's Earth Day & Arbor Day Festival is an interactive community event that invites community members of all ages to learn about environmental issues and solutions in a family-friendly, interactive atmosphere. Consistently attracting over 7,000 attendees and about 100 partner organizations, the Earth Day & Arbor Day Festival features hands-on activities, live entertainment, and delicious food served by local food trucks.
The volunteers at Cupertino’s Earth Day & Arbor Day Festival are crucial members of the team and help to make the event possible through set up, registration assistance, Eco-Passport distribution and management, waste management, hydration station management, Earth Day bike ride assistance, and much more! Your volunteering supports the City in holding a successful event that will engage community members in the diversity of programs and services that ensure Cupertino is healthy, sustainable, and resilient for generations to come.
There will be two 4.5 hour volunteer shifts for the event on April 22nd, 2017:
First Shift 7:00am-11:30am
Primarily involves event set up, registration, and assisting with the Earth Day Community Bike Ride and ends just in time to enjoy the event!
Second Shift 11:30am-4:30pm
Primarily involves assisting with keeping the event running smoothly through waste management, Eco-Pass distribution, assisting Tabling Partners, break down and more.
You may reserve volunteer spots by registering one ticket per volunteer (e.g. if you would like to bring 10 volunteers for your group, you need only register once with a quantity of 10 tickets). Please try to be as accurate as possible when estimating how many volunteers you will have in your group. If you do not end up needing all of the tickets you originally registered for, please notify the Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com as soon as possible.
Volunteers will need to be able to comfortably move tables and chairs (can be done in pairs) and remain on their feet for the majority of their shift. All volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. All volunteers will be required to submit a signed waiver prior to starting their shift (those under the age of 18 will need a signature from their parent or gaurdian as well).
Once registered, volunteers/volunteer groups will be contacted using the contact information provided during registration. More detailed information will be provided closer to the event date so stay tuned! If you have any immediate questions, please email our volunteer coordinator, Katy Nomura, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
