Salem Main Streets is looking for local Salem enthusiasts to help greet visitors at the October Information Booth. Volunteers will staff the booth at the start of the Essex Street Pedestrian Mall, handing out maps and sharing information about Salem’s wide variety of attractions, events, and businesses. Last year volunteers assisted over 22,000 visitors during the weekends and holidays in October.
All volunteers are asked to be available for a minimum of two shifts for two hours each and will be required to complete a one hour orientation session. The orientation will take place on Saturday, September 14 at 9:30 a.m. at the National Park Service Regional Visitor Center. Volunteers will be updated on new October events and there will be time for returning volunteers to share insights and information with those new to the program. Sign up for the Orientation here – https://signup.com/go/EfVkPPU
Volunteers are needed for two hour shifts throughout the day each weekend in October, as well as some additional dates including October 3 (Parade night), October 14 (Columbus Day), and of course, October 31 (Halloween Night). We are also looking for multi-lingual volunteers to assist the many international visitors who come to Salem. If you have availability some of these days, enjoy helping visitors by showing them your enthusiasm for our cultured and historic city, and want to make it fun and easy for visitors to explore all of Salem’s sites and attractions, please join us!
For more information or to become a volunteer please contact Kylie Sullivan, Salem Main Streets’ Executive Director, at (978)744-0004 x115 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This program is organized by Salem Main Streets in partnership with the City of Salem, with support from Destination Salem and the National Park Service.
