Volunteer Role of The Week: Office Corporation

Let’s have a look at the Office Corporation shift this week!

office help

As the festival goes on, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is having more office administrative tasks that need to be completed in order to support the signature events. There is a need of volunteers interested in performing various office tasks. It is also a very good opportunity to take a closer look at how the events are prepared and what is involved in the festival.

The office tasks include merchandise inventory, auction assistant, blossom decal delivery, events preparation, sponsor recaps mark up, mailing assembly, etc.. Volunteer should remain professional in an office environment. The familiarity with Google Drive, such as Docs, Sheets, and G-mail is a plus!

Want to be an office volunteer? Contact Eagle of Volunteer Department at yzhang@ncbfdc.org. Please also feel free to contact if you have any questions! Looking forward to seeing you in the office!

1.The people that you meet while working at the festival are amazing.

The National Cherry Blossom festival has some of the absolute best volunteers who are so friendly and warm so you are sure to make friends.

 

2.Volunteering for the festival gives you a behind the scenes view.

While you are volunteering at the festival you get to see how things are set up and the amount of work that goes into setting up events. It really makes you feel good that you are apart of it.

 

3.You learn a lot about DC.

While working in some positions such as the information tent, you learn all about the tidal basin, restaurants and things to do in DC so you can relay that Information to the guests.

People from all over the world come down to the cherry blossom festival every year and it’s so fun learning what countries they came from.
