HOPE, Helping Other People Everywhere, is a local not for profit charitable organization, and we are in our 40th year. Each summer we plan and host HOPE Volleyball SummerFest, which is our largest fundraiser of the year and it raises money for 3-6 local charities.

This years event will take place on Saturday July 16th 2022. Our annual event is an outdoor festival sporting event that combines a volleyball tournament with all day music. We have a volunteer planning team that is managed by 3 event managers and made up of a 40 person team who helps manage the 700 day of volunteers, as well as help with some of the planning leading up to this large event. We at HOPE are looking for some new members of our planning team. The commitment is not large- Approximately 30 hours over a 4 to 5 month period, and about 20 of those hours would take place the week of July 11th to July 25th. We are looking for volunteers that are dependable and reliable, committed to the full 5 months. We need volunteers with confidence and great leadership skills.

We require all volunteers to meet with the Operations Manager to be interviewed so that we can give more information to the applying Volunteer to see if this opportunity will fit and which position they would be best to fill.

Current committees that we are looking to fill are:
– Parking
– Logistics
– Signage/Cube coordination

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Benefits to becoming a member of the Hope Planning team include: You will learn a great deal about how a large event runs, you will be able to network with other members of the planning team, and you will have loads of fun doing so.
How will the organization benefit?
Hope will benefit from each and every volunteer because volunteers plan and run this event, without our volunteers we could not successfully run this large event.
