Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities


March with WGBY
Springfield Puerto Rican Parade
Sunday, September 18
Line Up 10:00 AM. Parade 11:00 AM  – 1:00 PM


Presencia, The Latino Youth Media Project, TOLD (Digital Storytelling Workshops), and the WGBY Latino Advisory Board are all part of WGBY’s deep involvement in the Pioneer Valley’s Latino community.  From the beginning, Vanessa Pabón-Hernandez has been at the forefront and we at WGBY could not be more proud that she’s been chosen to be the Grand Marshall of this year’s Puerto Rican Day Parade in Springfield.  Now we need YOU to march with WGBY in this year’s parade to help us honor Vanessa and all the great work she’s done for us and for the community.

Support Childhood Literacy at LittleFest
Springfield Museums
Saturday, September 24
Morning and Afternoon Shifts Available

It’s become a tradition. Every September, WGBY partners with the Springfield Museums to present LittleFest.  Thousands of Springfield residents and WGBY members get free entrance to the museum for the day, we set up a table and give hundreds of free books away to young readers and families and of course we bring one of the beloved PBS characters for kids to meet and greet.  This year we’ve got Arthur!  That’s where you come in.  We need help manning the book give away, working with and being Arthur.  Please sign up now to help us out for a few hours and delight some kids.

Coming Soon — Paradise City Arts Festival
Three County Fairgrounds, Northampton
Volunteers Needed Friday, October 7 – Sunday, October 10

NO!  Summer’s not over… yet.  But I’m afraid it’s a sure sign of fall as we start looking for volunteers to join us at the Paradise City Arts Festival.  WGBY will once again be conducting a silent auction at the show over Columbus Day weekend and will also be screening a special excerpt of a new behind the scenes look at the hit musical Hamilton.  We need lots of help!  You get free entrance to the show for the day in exchange for working a shift for us.  Help at the auction tables, give the artists a break booth sitting, or help with setup.  It’s a great way to spend a day helping WGBY and enjoying one of the country’s premiere craft shows.

Got a Green Thumb?
Weekly Volunteer Position at WGBY

WGBY is looking for a volunteer plant lover.  For years we’ve had lovely plants gracing each floor of 44 Hampden Street courtesy of a trade with DuRocher Florists.  Unfortunately, they have decided to go out of the plant care business.  That means we need someone to spend an hour or two weekly giving our plants a little loving care.  Please let Charley know if you can commit to helping out regularly and keep WGBY green.  We’re actually replacing the big skylights in our roofline this summer and I know our plants will thank you for a little tender loving care.
