Join SCA at the SF Green Festival
Calling for volunteers — SCA needs your help at the upcoming 3-day San Francisco Green Festival November 13th-15th. The festival is a joint project of Global Exchange and Co-op America to celebrate what’s working in our communities — for people, business and the environment.
Sign up to volunteer for a two-hour shift at the SCA booth and you can get into the Festival for free!
Over 125 renowned authors, leaders & educators will join 350 eco-friendly businesses in a unique marketplace with workshops, green films, kids’ activities, live music, and delicious, organic, vegetarian cuisine plus tons more.
SCA will have a booth in the Community Action section to share our programming with the public and get people excited about working in the outdoors. The festival hours are 12-7 on Friday; 10-7 on Saturday; and 11-6 on Sunday. We will be having 2-hour shifts with 2-3 volunteers per shift.
The shifts are as follows:
Friday, Nov. 14th: 11:45 am-1:30 pm, 1:30 pm-3:30 pm, 3:30 pm-5:30 pm, 5:30 pm-7:15 pm
Saturday, Nov. 15th: 9:45 am-11:30 am, 11:30 am-1:30 pm, 1:30 pm-3:30 pm, 3:30 pm-5:30 pm, 5:30 pm-7:15 pm
Sunday, Nov. 16th: 10:45 am-12:30 pm, 12:30 pm-2:30 pm, 2:30 pm-4:30 pm, 4:30 pm-6:30 pm
In an effort to make sure all volunteers are up to speed with all the new and exciting changes within SCA, we are requiring volunteers to attend a one hour orientation session at our Oakland office. You only need to attend one session. The sessions will be Wednesday, November 4th, 6-7 pm and Monday, November 9th, 6-7 pm.
**If you would like to volunteer but cannot attend either one of the orientation sessions, please email me to talk about other options.**
You can sign up for one or more shifts on the same day or more than one shift over the weekend. When you respond, include what shift(s) you are available for and which orientation date.
Remember, just a few hours at our booth gets you into the festival all day for free, so sign up today.
See you in San Francisco!
