Volunteer opportunity description

GIA hosts an annual Family Festival on Governors Island's Opening Weekend. The Family Festival serves as a celebration of the beginning of the summer season, a kick-off event for the Island's public programming, and publicity for the many events and exhibits that will be held on the Island throughout the summer. Volunteers will assist with the set-up of the event including set-up of activity stations, directing participants to their stations, addressing participant needs, answering visitor questions, helping with break down of the event and generally making sure that everything runs smoothly. If interested, volunteers will also help run arts and crafts tables, face-painting stations, and games for Festival attendees. 


Volunteers should be flexible, good with shifting between tasks, and be comfortable working with children and families.
