The Dragon Boat Festival is a really fun way to earn some volunteer hours. This year’s festival will take place from August 12th – 14th. They have already started recruiting and scheduling volunteers through their website, and would love to have some SMUS students on board this year. Visit their website and you will find all the information you need to register with the festival.
There are more than 20 types of volunteer positions, ranging from skilled jobs like Crew Marshalling, to social jobs like Greeters, to physical teams like the Site Crew, so there’s something for everyone. Shift times are between 6:00 am to 11:00 pm, but they need the most people during the day. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and there will also be an awesome Volunteer Appreciation Party after the festival has ended.
