On Sunday, May 12th (Mothers’ Day), JETAANY and the Japan Society will be hosting the Yo-Yo Balloon Tent at Japan Day in Central Park and we are looking for volunteers!
We’ll be helping hundreds of visitors “fish” for Yo-Yo Balloons and need JET Alumni volunteers to assist in many areas of the booth – including greeting the guests, explaining the game, prepping water balloons, and assisting children with the game.
All volunteers will get a delicious bento lunch, a drink and a free Japan Day t-shirt, plus meet tons of fun people and teach the NYC community a fun Japanese festival game.
This year we are having TWO shifts. If you are available for more than one shift that is great! Please don’t be late because it affects when other volunteers can finish their shift and eat their bento. If you sign up for the “Rock-Star” shift you will get breaks to enjoy the festival and to eat bento lunch.
#1 Morning shift: 9:00am-1:00pm help with set up, making balloons and running booth
#2 Afternoon shift: 12:30pm – 4:30pm help with making balloons, running booth and clean-up
Join us for a fun day teaching New Yorkers about a traditional Japan festival game!
