HOPE Volleyball SummerFest 2024,Planning Team Volunteer Opportunity


HOPE, Helping Other People Everywhere, is a local not for profit charitable organization. Each summer we plan and host HOPE Volleyball SummerFest, which is our largest fundraiser of the year and it raises money for 3-6 local charities. 


This year`s event will take place on Saturday July 13th 2024.  Our annual festival and sporting event combines a volleyball tournament with all day music and live entertainment. We have a 40 person volunteer Planning Team, managed by 3 Event Supervisors who help manage 600 event day volunteers, and play a role in lead up planning of this large event. We at HOPE are looking for new members of our planning team. 


The commitment is not large - approximately 30 hours over a 4 to 5 month period, with about 20 hours taking place during the week of July 8th to July 19th. We are looking for volunteers that are dependable, reliable and committed for the 5 month period. We need volunteers with confidence and great leadership skills.




Are you a logistics whiz that likes to be in the middle of the action and play a major role in event production? You may be a perfect fit for the Parking Committee. This position is a great opportunity for those looking to gain valuable large event management experience.  The Parking Committee manages four parking lots used for the festival, while providing oversight for event day volunteers. The Parking Committee will be working with many of the tools used in traffic management situations, such as traffic cones, barricades, directional signage, and 2-way radios. A vehicle will also be provided for easy access to the different lots      


The HOPE Team is also looking for one more member for the Info Booth/50-50 Committee.


We ask all those interested to meet with the Event Coordinator to discuss which position may be the best fit for the potential Planning Team recruit’s skills and interest.
