Jupiter Jubilee Volunteer Information
Jubilee Date: Saturday, February 4, 2017
Thank you in advance for volunteering your time to help make our annual Jupiter Jubilee event a big success! Below you will find information that you will need in order to make your volunteer experience a positive one. We ask that you review everything so that you are clear on what will be expected of you.
Mandatory Packet Pick up
Where: Jupiter Community Center, 200 Military Trail
When: Friday, February 3, 2017 from 8:30 am-8:30 pm.
Packets will include volunteer shirts, parking map, and additional information. It is important that you pick-up your packet on Friday so that they are aware of what will be expected of you and be prepared for the event. Parents/Friends may pick up packets for volunteers.
The Town of Jupiter relies heavily on all volunteers who have signed up to assist at this event. It is imperative that you show up to work at your area for the entire shift. If for some reason you are unable to make it to the event, please call (561)741-2400 as soon as possible so we can make arrangements to have your area covered.
Event Day Parking/Drop Off
If you are being dropped off, please arrange for your driver to get you as close to the Community Center as possible to drop you off. There will be police on site directing traffic into the public parking areas in front of the Community Center. If you are driving and parking at the event, you will need to allow extra time in case all on-site public parking is taken. Please refer to the site map included in your packet for additional public parking locations. It’s a good idea to pre-determine a pick up site and time with your driver prior to being dropped off. A phone will be available for use when your shift is completed.
Volunteer Check In
All volunteers are required to check in to the Community Center Art Room (Room #113) upon arrival. Please plan to check in at least 15 minutes before your shift starts!
|All Day Shift||10:00am-6:00pm|
If you are unsure of what shift you have registered for please call 741-2400 to verify.
All volunteers will be expected to wear the t-shirts provided in your packet along with appropriate length shorts, pants or jeans (no cut-offs or short shorts please!) and sneakers (NO FLIP-FLOPS). All activities will be outside so it is suggested that if the weather is cool that you wear a long-sleeve t-shirt under your volunteer shirt (rather than a sweatshirt or jacket) so that participants can easily identify all volunteers. This event will go on even in the event of rain so plan accordingly should the weather indicate a possible rainy day. In case of rain please bring a rain coat or poncho.
Cell Phone Policy
The use of a cell phone while volunteering is strictly prohibited. This includes texting, web browsing and talking. All volunteers are expected to actively supervise and participate in a variety of activities during their assignment. Use of a cell phone during the event time is strictly limited to use during an assigned break or in the event of an emergency. Volunteers should keep their cell phones in a purse, pocket or safe place while on duty. A free public phone is available on site to all volunteers if needed. If a volunteer is found to be in violation of the cell phone policy they may be asked to leave the event, volunteer hours may be forfeited, and future volunteer opportunities may be denied.
Community Service Hours
All volunteers are eligible to earn community service hours for this event. If your school has a required volunteer or community service log, please bring it to the event and present it to a Jubilee staff member in the Children’s Area for signing at the end of your shift. There will also be a sign in sheet that you will be required to complete at check in. If you need a separate letter of verification for your hours, please indicate this at the time of sign-out and you will be provided with one.
The Town of Jupiter Recreation Division and the Jupiter Jubilee Children’s Area Committee thank you for your commitment to this community event and appreciate your assistance! If you have any questions regarding this event or your responsibilities for the event, please call 741-2400. Thank you!
