Volunteer - 1 Voice Buddy for 2024 Children's Parade (Members Only)

  • 01/20/2024

  • Children's Parade - Bayshore Blvd


Registration is closed

Be a Buddy to a 1 Voice Child (or two) at the Children's Parade and earn 6 hours of volunteer time!  

Every year, YMKN hosts around 15 children  from 1Voice on our float for the Children's Parade.  Only the children attend (not the parents) so we need volunteers to buddy up with a child for the day.  Your job as their buddy is pretty simple...

  • Staging - Meet them in staging around 2pm and keep them entertained until the parade starts.   Some volunteers provide pirate-y stuff or a special bead necklace to their assigned child, but that's up to you.
    • If you want, ride with the kids on the bus to staging (bus will leave the aquarium at 1pm).  Please purchase a free bus pass on the web store just so we can keep a count of seats taken.
    • 1Voice will provide lunch for all children and volunteers to be consumed in the staging area.
  • During the Parade - Once the parade starts, you just need to hang with them on the float while they go crazy throwing beads and having the time of their lives! 
  • After the Parade - Make sure they get to the 1Voice/YMKN bus.  Volunteers are invited to ride the bus back to the Aquarium and join the 1Voice families for dinner.
