Mission Statement

Zócalo Public Square, a project of the Center for Social Cohesion at Arizona State University , is a not-for-profit Ideas Exchange that blends live events and humanities journalism . We partner with educational, cultural, and philanthropic institutions, as well as public agencies, to present free public events and conferences in cities across the U.S. and beyond, and to publish original daily journalism that we syndicate to more than 150 media outlets nationwide. At a time when our country's public sphere is narrow and polarized, Zócalo seeks to be a welcoming intellectual space where individuals and communities can tackle fundamental questions in an accessible, nonpartisan, and broad-minded spirit. We are committed to translating ideas to broad audiences and to engaging a new, young, and diverse generation in the public square.


Volunteers will help out at events being held by Zocalo Public Square. Duties include assisting the Field Producer in house management by keeping track of guests as they arrive, reserving seats for special guests, meeting and accomodating the needs of speakers as instructed, survey distribution and whatever else that may be asked of them at that time. Volunteers may also be asked to assist the Program Coordinator at registration by checking off guests as they arrive, directing people to the stand by line, escorting special guests to reserved seating areas, among other tasks. Once the program starts, they may sit and watch until the reception at the end of our programs.
