It’s here—a new school year, which means Theatre Action Project (TAP) needs your help in August to begin preparing for the excitement of fall and next spring. Here are some ways to get involved this month.
Become a 2012-2013 TAP Volunteer Project Leader
TAP seeks enthusiastic, committed volunteers to become Volunteer Project Leaders (VPLs) for the upcoming school year. We have a number of projects that will require dedicated attention from talented leaders this year. Here are some of the opportunities:
- TAP in the Community VPL: Assist with making of volunteer silly hats for Fall Fundraiser and help with other crafts.
- TAP in the Classroom Supply VPL: Oversee production of Mission Logs and Friendship Bracelets for the semester.
- Screen Printing VPL: Assist with occasional Screen Printing projects, including gathering and training volunteer assistants.
- Other opportunities to come.
Email Mary Alice Carnes, Community Relations Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information on how to become a VPL for this school year.
Help TAP After School Gear Up for Fall Semester
We need energetic, enthusiastic volunteers to help our TAP After-School programming staff. Volunteers will assist in our supply organizing: crayons, markers, pens, pencils, puppets, and more. Must be ready to go into classrooms with our fabulous Teaching Artists. Please email Cassie Swayze at email@example.com for more information or schedule a time to volunteer.
Be a Fall TAP in the Classroom Marketing Assistant
Are you gifted at speaking with people you’ve never met http://theatreactionproject.org/before? Do you have solid sales skills? We are looking for a few volunteers to call elementary school principals, librarians, and K-1st grade teachers about bringing our Heroes program to their schools. Each volunteer will be coached on what to say in the phone call and will receive a script for extra guidance.
These calls need to be made between August 20-24, so don’t delay! Set up your time to volunteer with Katie Grills, Community Relations VISTA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
