BECOMING A VOLUNTEER FOR NIGHT IN THE COUNTY
One of the reasons Night in the Country is a successful fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is due to our volunteers. Last year we had over 200 people donate their time and energy to help put on an amazing show for Night in the Country. Without this dedication and hard work from our volunteers we would not be able to put on this music festival.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is able to offer our volunteers a chance to participate in the Give & Get Program. This program was founded in 2013 and serves a unique purpose for non-profit organizations. With this program each volunteer will be able to work for an hourly rate ranging from $8-$12. This will then be donated by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley to each volunteer’s chosen non-profit organization.
Volunteers are required to complete an application form, pass a background check, and complete the online training. The age requirement for volunteers is 18. This is due to the insurance liability issues, as well as being able to run background checks. Applications will only be accepted through June 26, 2015.
For donating your time and energy you will be provided with a 2-day general admission credential for the Night in the Country. This credential wristband allows entry into the venue for the weekend. Along with the 2-day pass you will be provided with one free volunteer shirt. This shirt must be worn as a uniform and ONLY during your shift. We also have available meals and refreshments during your working shift, if applicable.
**Volunteer packets, credentials, and shirts will be issued at the volunteer center when you arrive on-site for your job shift and ONLY to those who have participated in the online training program. **
Training links will be sent to your email once approved and accepted into the program. All trainings MUST be completed by July 3, 2015 in order to confirm your NITC volunteer job position. If the training is not completed you will NOT be guaranteed a position. Your job placement, shift times, and job descriptions will be sent out for your review and acceptance after the training is complete. The acceptance of your position needs to be completed before July 8, 2015.
**Parking passes are NOT covered with this volunteer program. The parking fee will be $5.00 a day or $10 for the weekend and can be purchased online before the event.
After the music festival, an appreciation event will be held to recognize all volunteers who have participated in this year’s event. The Give & Get check presentations for the non-profit organizations chosen by the volunteers will be presented. This year the event will be held August 8, 2015.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley greatly appreciates your interest in the volunteer program, and we look forward to another great year!
