During these uncertain times, how can we help?

The Greenway Conservancy is seeking park-based ambassadors who will interact with children and adult visitors, engaging them in art and educational activities and providing them with guidance and information about The Greenway, The Conservancy, Greenway programming and contemporary art. We are looking for people who are passionate about The Greenway and the Boston community, and are comfortable with public speaking. The ideal candidates are playful, professional, and are excited to work with a team to create meaningful experiences for visitors and locals alike!
Community Engagement Ambassadors will primarily be needed from May through early October, though opportunities may be available after that time. We rely on a set shift schedule that provides coverage during busy times of the week and weekend. There will also be some special, one-time shifts that will support special events, activities, and performances.
We are also interested in working with volunteers who would like to take on a larger number of shifts and create a professional experience in the youth development/education field that would be suitable for college credit.
This position reports to Isabel Smith Volunteer and Programs Coordinator, and works very closely with Sheila Novak, the Public Art Project Manager and PhuongDuy Tran, Senior Programs Coordinator. Volunteers work in set shift schedules, providing coverage during busy times of the week.
Volunteers are required to attend two in person training sessions, and will be invited to attend additional continued education opportunities throughout the season.
Volunteers will be provided with and asked to wear an apron identifying them as an Community Engagement Ambassador. Otherwise we ask that volunteers wear casual but professional clothing appropriate for the outdoors.
All Volunteers will be asked to sign a Volunteer Waiver and The Greenway Volunteer Code of Conduct prior to volunteering.
Recruitment for 2020 will open in March and volunteers will be interviewed starting soon after. Training sessions will happen in the spring and early summer and preference is given to volunteers that can commit to these sessions. To apply, please fill out the online Art Ambassador application available on our website. www.rosekennedygreenway.org/volunteer

The Rose Kennedy Greenway is a premiere contemporary urban park that connects people and the city of Boston by providing beauty, fun, and a sense of community in the heart of downtown. The Conservancy is the designated steward of the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
The Greenway is 1.5 mile long 15 acre contemporary park in the heart of Boston. The Greenway serves as the roof of the Central Artery tunnel that was the result of the Big Dig Project which has fundamentally transformed downtown Boston.
The Greenway Conservancy maintains and operates the Greenway through an agreement with the State of Masschusetts, which owns the Greenway and the tunnel beneath it.
We maintain the landscape organically, host hundreds of events and programs each year and welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors, residents and workers 365 days a year!
We'll work with your schedule.
