Here at the All Stars Project SFBA, we run a youth development program called Development School for Youth. The aim of the program is to connect youth from poor communities with mainstream America, to support them to develop their professional performance and to make their world bigger and open their eyes to opportunities available to them. We do this by leading weekly workshops in corporate environments and offering summer internships. The program is open to all 16 - 21 year olds, regardless of academic results. You can find bout the All Stars philosophy here: https://allstars.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Lets-Pretend-by-Newman-Fulani-January-2011.pdf
Our events are unique because they are integral to our youth development program and we bring the San Francisco Bay Area business community together with our youth and create an environment where they network, listen to each other’s stories and inspire each other to create more connected world together.
We are looking for enthusiastic and friendly volunteers to join our event production team and help make our events a success. We need:
- Registration: Setting up the venue (e.g. chairs out, marketing materials displayed) welcoming guests, ensuring every guest is registered with a nametag, answering simple questions about the event.
- Stage management: making sure the AV is working, understanding the flow of the event, ensuring speakers know when to go on stage, managing stage movements.
- Front of house: showing people to their seats, managing venue service staff, setting up the venue, stewarding.
- Photography: photographing events
- Videography/Live Streaming: live streaming our events or recording events
Most of our events take place 4.30 - 7.30pm weekday and events require volunteers to come for a 1 hour briefing prior to the event. We also ask volunteers to dress professionally for our events.
Some of the roles require further commitment e.g. stage management will require a script familiarization session, potential session on stage blocking and potential dress rehearsal with our youth for some events.
If you are interested, we will invite you in for an orientation session where we will find out more about what you want from your volunteering experience and answer all of your questions!
