OPEN VOLUNTEER POSITIONS for 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR
OUR SUCCESS IS BECAUSE OF YOUR INVOLVEMENT
Our award winning program is looking for parents seeking
volunteer opportunities to support and work with the
Marching Band & Color Guard.
WE WANT AND NEED YOU FOR THE FOLLOWING:
Golden 1 Arena / River Cats Baseball Coordinator
to schedule work events and coordinate JFK volunteers.
You will also manage money and schedule work breaks.
As a volunteer, you will work at a concession stand
operated by JFK parents/friends and earn money,
up to $75 per shift, that goes toward paying your
student’s 2019-20 Fair Share Fees ($425) and/or
the May 2020 Disneyland Trip costs (est. $800).
Meals Coordinator (on competition days)
to coordinate a team of volunteers who plan meals
and snacks for our students on competition days.
Please contact Booster President Victoria Greenlee
if you are interested. Please keep in mind that many of
the positions can be shared among several parents.
PAY OFF FAIR SHARE & TRIP FEES THE FUN & EASY WAY
by volunteering at River Cats and Golden 1 Arena Events
Did you know you can earn enough credits to pay annual Fair Share
Fees by working as few as five or six volunteer shifts at these events.
If you don’t want to spread it out over the five or six events, consider
bringing a group (such as family members or friends) and together
you can earn enough credits in one event. How easy and fun is that?
But there’s more! Volunteer for more shifts and earn credits for
travel costs when the band goes on its big trips.

WHO SAYS FUNDRAISING CAN’T BE FUN?
Earn money to offset your Fair Share of trip fees. It’s easy!
As a volunteer at a King’s game, Golden 1 Arena concert or
event, or River Cats game, you can earn between $60-75
per shift, per person. A family of four (volunteers must be 18
or over) can easily earn $240-300 in one shift, which will
put a huge dent into paying your Fair Share Fee or trip costs.
Text JFKBAND2 to 81010 for upcoming volunteer opportunities,
or check out our fun Fundraising page. You’ll be glad you did!
