This five day festival is a free celebration of the arts in the heart of Boston. We are in need of volunteers to work alongside festival staff, industry professionals, and artists to create a festival that is enjoyable and accessible for all. Volunteers will be surrounded by live performances from local and national artists while contributing to the OTB 2016 focus on accessibility and innovation. Would you be able to share this opportunity with the Boston Teacher’s Union community?
Volunteers must be ages 16+ and are encouraged to work two shifts during the festival. The shifts range from 4-6 hours and can be adjusted to fit with busy schedules. Volunteers are provided with snacks, a festival t-shirt, and are able to receive a 10% discount at Boloco on the common when they wear their festival shirt to the restaurant the week of the festival.

The Home has been able to secure a really exciting partnership with the MA Service Alliance to become a host site for their Commonwealth Corps Program. Now the Home is looking for 2 full time people to help research and develop a tutoring program for the Longview Farm and Southeast Campus locations. Please note these are not “employees” but will be considered “service members.” These service members will spend about half of their time at 10 Guest Street and the other half either in Plymouth or Walpole. Once the research is done, the members will also be helping to recruit and train volunteer tutors to implement the tutoring strategies in the school. It is a 10.5 month service position, running August 15th, 2016 to June 24th, 2017, and each person will receive a bi-weekly stipend for their time with us.
This would be a great role for a retired educator or someone who has spent a little time away from the workforce and is looking to get their feet wet again! Please pass this along to anyone who you think might be interested. The position description is attached to this email. The deadline for this application is Friday, June 3rd! Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
