River To River 2015
June 18 – 28
River To River’s 2015 Volunteer initiative provides opportunities for individuals and companies to engage more deeply with the Festival’s artists, audiences, locations, and partners.
River To River Volunteers are asked to fulfill a number of duties including:
AMBASSADOR: all volunteers will have the opportunity to participate directly in our outreach efforts as street team members, greeting audiences at events, providing way-finding assistance throughout the Festival landscape, and directing audience members seeking events across the district.
INTERCEPTOR: all volunteers work with LMCC staff to collect information from attendees onsite through surveys and sign-ups. The information collected will tell us more about our audiences and will impact programmatic and audience outreach strategies and decision-making.
BEHIND-THE-SCENES: all volunteers support logistical needs such as set up, clean up, and transport, all of which is at the core of our ability to provide the best possible audience experience at Festival events.
Volunteer shifts are typically 4 hours long:
Afternoon Shift: 12–4pm
Evening Shift: 4-8pm
Night Shift: 6–10pm
Please note these times may vary slightly from day to day. Anyone scheduled for longer than 4 hours will be given time for a meal break.
Please click here to list your availability to volunteer throughout the festival. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to confirm your orientation meeting and volunteer shifts. Thank you in advance for helping make this the best River To River yet!
LMCC Internship Program
LMCC is an ideal setting to learn in an ‘out-of-the-classroom’ setting. LMCC connects you to a robust network of professional connections and gives you the hands-on experience you need to advance your career in a variety of non-profit arts settings. Whether you are in college, a recent graduate, or a young adult looking to make a career transition, our 20-person staff is ready to share their experience with you.
LMCC’s internship program provides meaningful opportunities for individuals interested in gaining hands-on experience in the arts and culture sector, from the perspective of a leading non-profit organization in New York City. Interns learn about and participate in the planning, execution, and reporting processes related to LMCC’s artist empowerment programs and public engagement initiatives, as well as the communication/fundraising/branding and non-profit finance, administrative and operations activities.
Interns are paired with a staff member to concentrate on their internship focus, and will gain exposure to all departments in our collaborative-minded office over a 4-month period.
Internships are for approximately 4 months for an average of 20 hours per week, including supporting evening and weekend events. A travel stipend of $125 per month will be provided for the duration of the internship. The start/end dates of the program are flexible and should be agreed upon between the intern and their supervisor prior to the start of the internship.
Internship Focuses: Listed below are the 15 different internship focuses available to choose from, you can apply up to three focuses on your application. Based on your internship focus, you will be paired one-on-one with a staff member at LMCC to contribute your knowledge, apply your skills, and deepen your interests and find new ones too. Our open office plan and frequent collaboration across departments, also makes the perfect environment to gain an understanding of the entire organization.
