Volunteer for Jazz in the Meadows – We still need your help!

Today we are featuring the Inside Security, Cafeteria Servers and Concession Sales.  There are so many great reasons to serve and be a part of the best Jazz festival in the Midwest.  Check them out below.

We also ask you to consider volunteering for more than one position during the day if you have the time (you’re already going to be there anyways, right?), and as always, we and the students thank you!


Featured Volunteer Need: Inside Security/Hall Monitors

Sign Up Now!

Top 5 reasons to work Inside Security/Hall Monitors:

  1. You are the Key Master – you will hold the keys to RMHS.  You will be wildly popular and people will think you’re important, because you are.
  2. Counting your steps?  You will meet – and most likely exceed – your step goal for the day.  Enjoy getting fit while volunteering!
  3. You get to wear a snazzy purple JITM Staff T-shirt and a neon armband so everyone will know how important you are.
  4. Volunteers get in free to the finale concert & Jeff Coffin and the Mu’tets are AMAZING!
  5. All of the proceeds raised benefit the music program directly, and your directors and students will be forever grateful.

Featured Volunteer Need: Cafeteria Servers & Concession Sales

Top 5 reasons to work in the Cafeteria and in Concession Sales:

  2. You will be very influential in helping those undecideds choose between pizza, Subway sandwiches or a salad.  People will think you’re important, because you are.
  3. You get to wear a snazzy purple JITM Staff shirt!
  4. All volunteers get in free to the finale concert, and Jeff Coffin and the Mu’tet are AMAZING!
