International Festival - Volunteers Needed
This year, International Focus Inc. will be hosting the 33rd International Festival of Raleigh from October 26 to the 28th. The International Festival is a celebration of cultural heritage, community, and friendship, welcoming over 20,000 visitors annually. We represent the great diversity of the Triangle and invite you to join us this year!
The Festival offers three days of international performances, food, games, art, cultural exhibits, and shopping at the Raleigh Convention Center. Over 50 Triangle communities from Afghan to Vietnamese participate to showcase their cuisine, dance, and music; to share traditions and friendship, and to celebrate the Triangle’s unique diversity.
We offer a variety of activities during the festival to suit most every schedule and interest. Your students can sign up to volunteer at this link https://internationalfocus.org/volunteers/
If you have any questions, please contact DeAnne Dotson, the Volunteer Coordinator at DDotson@InternationalFocusNC.org or call her at 919-782-0552.
Your Best Shot Leadership Academy - Volunteers Needed!
At Your Best Shot, we are currently looking for high school volunteers to assist us with our Homework Helpers Program. We provide homework assistance, remediation, study skills development and enrichment for students in grades k-8. We operate Monday through Friday from 3 to 8.
We are less than 15 minutes from Wakefield High School. We are located at the intersection of Harps Mill and Litchford (8320 Litchford Road) in a Food Lion shopping center. Students can volunteer for one day or more depending on their interest and availability. Ideally, we would love to find students who might have an interest in teaching because this will provide an unbelievable opportunity to work directly with students with the guidance of experienced educators but will embrace anyone with interest.
Our website is www.yourbestshotllc.com and students can check out the specifics of our program and our other program offerings. Please Email Phil Moses at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Progressive Turnout Project Fellowship - Internship Opportunity!
Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) is a grassroots political action committee with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. We’ve realized that democracy isn’t something that happens every two years in November -- it’s something we must participate in everyday!
We created the Progressive Turnout Project Community Action Network (PTPCAN) after the 2016 election because constituent advocacy is more important now than ever before. PTPCAN is led by a team of staffers who work in targeted districts across the country. These staffers work with local activists to identify important local issues, organize visible and effective advocacy, and pressure Trump-supporting legislators to create a culture of political participation that will advance progressive ideas year-round. We are building a long-term organizing effort in North Carolina.
Over the coming months, we will be organizing phone banks, canvasses, press events, and skill building trainings on organizing tactics. Whether you're a student who wants to learn the ins and outs of organizing, retired and hoping to raise your level of commitment, or anyone in between, the Resistance Fellowship program is for you.
We're relying on energetic and passionate people to help build a long-term infrastructure. We’re looking for a few committed Resistance Fellows to join our team!
The Fellowship program is designed to test, train, and develop the next generation of resistance leaders and community organizers. Organizing is inspiring, complex, moving, and difficult work.
This is an unpaid position. Fellows who complete the program will leave with a full understanding of the tools, tactics, and language that organizers use to make change in their communities. Fellows will be members of the organizing team in North Carolina. They will: - Engage new potential volunteers through phone calls and canvassing. - Hold 1 on 1 meetings with potential volunteers to develop relationships. - Enter, organize, and maintain the data from all of our interactions in communities. - Attend and host skill building trainings with our community partners, and volunteers. - Plan and execute events with other staff, interns, and volunteers within the community. - Commit a minimum of 10 hours per week to the program. (Class credit can be arranged.) To Apply, Email a Resume and Cover Letter To: Gina Cruz, North Carolina State Director email@example.com
