YSU’s summer arts fest seeks volunteers

Staff report


The 16th annual Summer Festival of the Arts, July 12-13 at and around Youngstown State University, is seeking volunteers.

Help is needed at several places, including artist registration, the information booths, the children’s hands-on art tent, performance sites and the Festival of Nations.

Various shifts are available. Each volunteer receives a festival T-shirt, cold water and reserved free parking. “Each year our participants compliment our volunteer corps on their knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism,” said Lori A. Factor, festival coordinator. “Our volunteers are crucial to the festival’s success and offer a personal touch to make this event successful.”

Volunteers needing service hours logged, such as for National Honor Society, sorority or fraternity service, can also participate. Service verification forms will be completed. “National Honor Society service hours begin for many schools during the summer,” said Factor. “This is a wonderful way to get in those needed hours and we will gladly complete any paperwork for students.”

Interested individuals or teachers advising service organizations can obtain an application by calling 330-941-2307, emailing lafactor@ysu.edu or going to ysu.edu/sfa and downloading a form.
