Green City Market Group Volunteer Application
Green City Market welcomes volunteer groups to assist with daily operations and specialty programs on Wednesdays and Saturdays at Green City Market Lincoln Park . Groups can commit to full days at the market but we can accommodate different hours depending on their ability and the size of their group.
The primary tasks we are looking for volunteer groups to help with is either with our customer counts or our sustainability stations. Market customer counts are essential data collection we use to report to grant funders and our farmers. Sustainability stations are our single use waste sorting areas where volunteers can educate our customers on proper waste disposal. Each task requires between 4 and 8 volunteers. We can accommodate groups up to 16 individuals at a time.
The group contact person must participate in a call prior to the group volunteer day to review expectations and tasks for that particular market day. Regular tasks for groups supplement market needs, including assisting at the information booth, running sustainability stations to sort single-use waste items from around the market, or managing special at-market programs.
Groups should check in with the onsite market manager at the Green information tent upon arrival, they will direct you to the proper areas.
While the Market operates rain or shine, weather events or extreme temperatures may make performances difficult or dangerous, as volunteer areas are sometimes uncovered. Please check in with operations staff when these events occur to determine the best course of forward action.
After submitting your application we will be in touch shortly to confirm your participation.
