As the event continues to grow, so does the need for volunteers!

Last year's event — with about 85 exhibitors and more than 5,500 visitors — could not have been successful without the help of volunteers, including students, staff, faculty, and community members.

EarthFest 2019 will be held on the fields near our large student parking lot on Meetinghouse Road. All of our event features will be together, providing a fun, exciting cohesive event that we believe will provide an even greater experience both our visitors and exhibitors.

We are hoping that we can count on previous volunteers returning, and new volunteers participating for the first time!

We have dozens of positions that we need filled, and several time options to choose from. A list of positions available and a short description of each position is detailed below. Time slots are also included.

We will try to accommodate position requests on a first come, first served basis. Your time requests WILL be honored, as we understand that many campus departments may have their staff volunteer in shifts.

Community Volunteers Welcome

EarthFest is an event that highlights how communities can come together to protect and preserve our environment, our towns, and ourselves - it's all about sustainability!

Why not become a part of the team and volunteer at what has become one of the largest celebrations of Earth Day on the East Coast?

Are you a local community member or a member of an area organization that would like to help out? Contact us! We'd be happy to have you!

Information Tables

Distribute bags and event maps. Give general event information as needed.

Guest Assistance

Assist visitors in finding their way through the event, including each exhibitor area, restrooms, dining areas and the main stage. Give general event information as needed. Ensure the safety of visitors and Temple property.

Bus Parking

Participate in a large team that organizes bus drop off, pick up, and parking. Also assist in directing other event vehicular traffic as well as the normal traffic from students, staff and faculty during the day. This is a critical task at EarthFest!

Volunteer Perks

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to participate in a day-long celebration of sustainability where you can help children of all ages learn what they can do to better their communities?

Along with the satisfaction of being a part of this event, all EarthFest volunteers receive a t-shirt (to be worn the day of the event).
