2 people are interested
The success of Autism Speaks Walk depends on the dedication and support of its volunteers. Volunteers assist in many capacities - checking in participants, providing encouragement at water stops and cleaning up after the event which in turn reduces event costs and drives more funds directly to the mission. You can recruit friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!
Description: Volunteers assigned to be greeters will be located at the entrance of the park from the parking lot. They will be responsible for directing all participants to the appropriate area, answer questions as they arise, and contact staff if items arrive for drop off.
CHECK-IN & NEW REGISTRATION
Description: Volunteers assigned to check-in will be responsible for welcoming participants, registering those who have not registered and collecting any day of donations. All money donations should be kept in an envelope that will be collected by the check-in captain. Check-in volunteers should let participants know when they are ready for the next participant to register by raising their blue puzzle piece. After check-in is finished, volunteers are responsible for cleaning up all materials and handing in completed forms to Autism Speaks staff. For those walkers who have not registered yet, they will have the option to fill out a registration form at a separate table before entering the check in tent. Volunteers will be stationed there to assist with managing the onsite registration area, answer any questions regarding filling out registration forms, and collect all forms after check in is finished.
KIDS ZONEDescription: Volunteers assigned to the Kids Zone area will be responsible for supervising over the photo booth and the arts and crafts tables. Making sure the area is well stocked, organized, and managed as needed. The area will include bubbles, crafts and coloring stations as well as a photo booth. You may be asked to act as the photo booth photographer if needed (camera will be provided). Please be sure to assist with any line formations and directing participants to activities within the Kids Zone.
