Volunteers needed for Doors Open Buffalo

Posted by Tim on April 15, 2019 in Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

Explore Buffalo is recruiting volunteers for Doors Open Buffalo, taking place on June 15, 2019. Doors Open Buffalo is a day of free public access into downtown Buffalo’s most architecturally and historically significant buildings. Based on Doors Open events in other cities like Baltimore and Pittsburgh, we are expecting up to 15,000 people to visit the 35 buildings on tour. 

We will need hundreds of volunteers to staff this event.  Volunteer duties include greeting and counting visitors, distributing event guides, and providing directions and a basic history of your assigned building.  

Volunteer shifts are 3 hours long, starting no earlier than 8:30 am and ending no later than 5:30 pm so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the reset of the event before or after your shift. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up with friends and family.  You do not have to be an Explore Buffalo volunteer to participate. Please register via the following link.  Once signed up you’ll receive a confirmation email.  Explore Buffalo will be back in touch no later than May 17 with volunteer training dates and no later than June 7 with your building and shift assignment.  https://explorebuffalo.org/doors-open-buffalo/
