The Parade Company offers a well–rounded internship that touches on all aspects of the event industry. Interns will be involved in budgets, marketing, sponsorship, communication, planning, coordinating, logistics, event management and sales. Check out a sample of the scope of work interns will be involved with throughout the 30 weeks below.
ART STUDIO, SEWING & EVENTS
If you are more of a “behind the scenes” type, we have a role for you, too. We need volunteers to help build and paint floats and help sew in our costumes. We can take up to 8 volunteers per day in our studio.
The Parade Company is also looking for volunteers to fill a wide variety of roles for our fabulous events, such as the Ford Fireworks and Hob Nobble Gobble presented by Ford. Whatever you are looking to do we can use your help. Every volunteer receives appropriate training, makes long-lasting friendships, receives rewards for hours worked, and has the opportunity to create smiles for many!
To volunteer, please complete our General Volunteer Application. Once you do so you will be put into the volunteer database and begin to receive the bi-monthly volunteer newsletter and upcoming volunteer opportunities including Art Studio help and many other great events! Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and fully vaccinated to help with indoor events.
If you are interested in volunteering for America’s Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Gardner-White, you must also complete the Parade online application.
