One of the best parts of the Festival is our effort to implement "zero waste" procedures to make this one of the "greenest" events in New Jersey. We cannot do that alone. The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and Clean Water Fund are seeking volunteers to help reduce the environmental impact of this event and to support the city of sustainability in Newark. This is essential to a successful Festival - will you join us?
As a volunteer, not only will you be contributing to a massive sustainability program and the image of Newark as an arts and environment leader, you will also receive a t-shirt, refreshments and meals while you are on duty. Most importantly, you get free admittance to all poetry events on the day you are volunteering. This is your chance to see a past or future U.S. Poet Laureate, a Pulitzer Prize winner, a National Book Award winner...or a young poet just beginning his or her career. Volunteer for this great festival today!
We hope that you will take this opportunity to volunteer for Clean Water Fund's "Green Team" for the Dodge Poetry Festival, and be a part of something truly special for Newark and all of New Jersey.
