How should I dress? Do I need to bring anything?
Please wear loose fitting/comfortable clothing and supportive footwear. Many jobs will involve being directly in sunlight or rain – please bring sunscreen or wear protective clothing (e.g., hats/caps/rain gear/umbrella). Pay attention to the local weather to get an idea. You may need gloves for certain types of jobs (e.g., loading/unloading tables & chairs, picking up and emptying trash containers, etc.).
Where do volunteers go when they get to the celebration? Is there a central “check-in” place?
When you arrive at Sawyer Point go to the “Volunteers” tent. You’ll sign in (“Time In” and “Liability Release” forms), and be assigned a job.
Can I get credit for a “Community Service” type project?
We are happy to provide signatures or other documentation (e.g., a copy of the volunteer sign in/sign out sheet) showing the number of hours that you volunteered for the Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration – please just let us know what you need when you sign in.
How old do volunteers need to be? Are there any restrictions?
We generally recommend that volunteers be high school age or older — children younger than 14 must have adult supervision. All volunteers are required to sign a “Liability Release” form (see below), and a parent or guardian signature is required for all minors (under age 18) who volunteer. This can be signed by a parent/guardian in advance and brought to the Celebration by the youth volunteer, or signed at the event by the parent or guardian.
What if it is raining on Earth Day?
The Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration will go on RAIN or SHINE!!
What if I cannot perform the duties of the assigned job?
Safety first. Please let someone know at the GCEC tent which is on the concrete area. Please do not do anything that you are physically unable to do. We will be able to provide assistance.
All volunteers are required to sign a Liability Release, either the day of or in advance (an adult parent/guardian must sign for minors under age 18).
