Volunteer for one shift and enjoy First Night Akron during the other...your volunteer credentials will admit you to any First Night venue.

First Shift - 5:30-9 p.m.*
Second Shift - 8:30-11:30 p.m.*
*Shifts may vary slightly with venue.

We’ll place you in a volunteer position based on your strengths. Whatever your abilities, we have the volunteer slot that’s right for you. Whether you’re a first timer or a veteran volunteer, you’ll enjoy being part of the First Night Akron family.

These are the volunteer opportunities available:

Greeters (welcome guests as they enter venue)

Button Checkers (politely check that guests are wearing a First Night Button)

Clickers (keep count of guests as they enter)

Emcees (announce on-stage talent)

Activities (assist with interactive activities, such as mask-making)

Bus Tour Guides (for those with the gift of gab, ride the First Night bus, point out downtown buildings, let riders know what is coming up along the route, answer questions, etc.)

Volunteer Orientation Training is mandatory for everyone. See reverse side for training sessions.
