Interested in community events and volunteerism? Currently, Brazos Valley Worldfest is looking for individuals to co-chair some of its twelve committees. Committees include stages, culture displays, vending, logistics, green team, fashion show, kid’s village and cooking demonstrations.
We are also accepting volunteers for 3 hour shift work. Individuals or organizations can participate and documentation of your service can be provided. If you are interested in shift work on Friday and/or Saturday of the festival, visit http://www.brazosvalleyworldfest.org/volunteering to fill out the online application.
Planning has begun and these volunteer opportunities are excellent for anyone interested in building leadership qualities, event planning, heritage/cultural activities or community involvement.
Brazos Valley Worldfest is a cultural and heritage festival organized by Texas A&M University and the City of College Station. The festival takes place on Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21, 2015, at Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater.
We are currently looking for people to assist on July 9th, 10th, and 11th at Veteran’s Park and Athletic Complex to make this year’s Adidas Texas 7on7 Championship tournament the best possible. We need at least 12 people on-site throughout the tournament and have broken the opportunity into 3 hour shifts over the course of the tournament. This means there are a total of 144 shifts that need to be filled, and we need your help! This is a wonderful opportunity to assist the Parks and Recreation Department, serve the community, and gain volunteer hours as a logistics coordinator.
If interested, please sign up here and note the following:
- You are welcome, and even encouraged to sign up for multiple shifts.
- Because of the length of the volunteer shift, meals will not be provided.
- You will be outside in the sun, so we encourage you to bring sunscreen.
- A volunteer shirt will be provided upon your arrival.
- Please wear professional and appropriate shorts (i.e. no tears, holes, or “short shorts”).
This unique educational experience benefits the 5th graders because they get out of the traditional classroom and see that parks are more than just recreational and can also be educational. The historical trail located at Veterans Park in College Station has great interpretive panels, statues, & memorials and many in our community visit that park for soccer and softball, but don’t know the historical side exists. Hopefully, our project helps generate more awareness about our community assets. Last year we had 1400 students from local schools participate over 4 days.
