Ashley for the Arts Volunteers Needed
We are ready again for people to sign up for Ashley for the Arts shifts.  It is very important to read below to understand what shift/s you are signing up for. People wishing to sign up on behalf of music must use the getmusic password and people signing up sports need to use the getsports password.   Please also make sure that you label the specified group (ex. Basketball, Choir, etc) so we can make sure we get the correct amount of donations to each group.  Thank you again for your support. 

ASHLEY FOR THE ARTS VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP IS READY!!!

 

The volunteer website is complete and ready to go for all of the very eager Ashley for the Arts volunteers.  Each participating group has been assigned volunteer slots that range from parking attendants, ticket booths, entrance guards, beverage servers to many more throughout the weekend!  There are over 3,400 volunteer shifts assigned to more than 40 non-profit organizations – we are very thankful to have your organization apart of this event!

 

A few notes to help your volunteers as they sign-up:

  1. Volunteer website is located on www.ashleyforthearts.com under the “Participate” tab
  2. A step-by-step “Volunteer Sign-Up Process” is attached to this email – be sure to send this onto your volunteers to help them with sign-up
  3. All shifts for your organization are password protected – volunteers need to enter the password FIRST to see available shifts (see below for unique password to give to volunteers)
  4. Only ONE volunteer name can be submitted at a time as the sign-up is unique to each volunteer (first name, last name, email, shirt size, etc)
  5. Each job has a short “job description” to help explain the job duties
  6. Be mindful that certain jobs require a 21+ volunteer – if 21+ is required it will be noted in the job description
  7.  Site is available for everyone to access without needing coordinators to complete the sign-up

YOUR ORGANIZATION PASSWORD is: getsports (donation goes to sports dept.) & getmusic (donation goes to music dept.) (shifts are unique to each password)

*password is NOT case sensitive
