Estimated Volunteer Time Commitment

  • Before event: Less than 2 hrs/ month
  • 1 Month Before the Event: Less than 10 hrs
  • Event: Duration of Saturday's main Kurentovanje event

Position Description
As a non-profit organization, we are constantly looking for additional streams of revenue to continue to fund and grow our annual event. We have an amazing offer from a dear sponsor to order Kurent-branded merchandise at a great rate so that we can sell these products at our event and online. 

The primary role of the Merchandise Coordinator would be to lead online fulfillment (i.e. making sure that online orders get shipped out).

Ideally, you would have fairly consistent availability to keep an eye out for orders (you'll get a notification when an order has been placed), and then box and ship the order to the recipient. We'd also look to you to let us know when we need to order more of a product that has a low inventory level. You DO NOT need to worry about keeping up the website or tracking financials.  

This will be a new effort for us and we will ensure that you are fully supported in this role

Estimated Volunteer Time Commitment

  • Monthly: This is a new role, but we estimate it will be less than 8hrs/ month. If this role necessitates more time, we will look to get you support.
  • Event: Duration of Saturday's main Kurentovanje event

Merchandise Coordinator


Position Description
Our Parade Coordinator needs a second set of hands! You will help planning parade, soliciting the participants and overall communication with the participants.

On the day of the event, we'll need you bright and early to help get parade participants lined up and ready to march!

The benefit of this role is that you'll be under the wing of an established lead.

Estimated Volunteer Time Commitment

Assistant to the Parade Coordinator


Position Description
Our Vendor Coordinator needs a second set of hands! You will help planning the vendor layout, soliciting the vendors, vetting the applications and communicating with the approved vendors.

On the vendor set-up day, it would be awesome if you were available to help direct the vendors as they arrived. On the day of the event, we hope you'd be able to assist with any vendor issues or requests.

The benefit of this role is that you'll be under the wing of an established lead.
