The Dragon Boat Festival is a really fun way of getting some volunteer hours.
This year’s festival will take place August 17th to the 19th. They have already started recruiting and scheduling volunteers through their website, and they’d love to have some SMUS students on board this year. Please visit http://www.victoriadragonboat.com/EN/main/volunteer/221.html and you will find all the information you need to register with the festival.
They have more than 20 types of volunteer position, 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 run from as early as 6:00 am to as late as 11:00 pm, but they need the most people during the daytime. They are going to need around 500 volunteers!
Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt, and there will also be an awesome Volunteer Appreciation Party after the festival has ended.
