“The Proud, The Few, The Trash Crew” is in need of volunteers over the duration of the festival. The crew is responsible for of maintaining cleanliness of the festival zone as well as emptying the trash and recycling receptacles. This is a great opportunity for groups looking to help since it is a great team building activity and is a lot of fun. All of those volunteering for “The Crew” will receive a special collectable trash crew T-shirt.
Some lifting and walking is required of trash crew members. For those interested, please contact Bill Ryan, Trash Crew Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For men and women interested in the Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition, other volunteer opportunities are available. Sidewalk Sale Ambassadors are on duty throughout the Sidewalk Sale to provide assistance and information to artists. Ambassador shifts are two to three hours long, depending on the availability of the volunteer. An Ambassador is often asked to watch an Artist's booth for 15-20 minutes while the artists take a quick break so that they can grab a bite to eat or visit the rest room. Ambassadors are frequently asked for basic information regarding the festival and the State College area.

The job is very rewarding and a great way to meet artists as well as other community volunteers. Being an ambassador requires a significant amount of walking, so an average degree of physical fitness is required. Since it might involve answering questions about State College and Penn State, Ambassadors should have proficiency in English and be somewhat familiar with State College.
Those interested in getting involved should contact Duane Funk at email@example.com and Lori Hartman firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer information.
