Know Your City is looking for volunteers to help staff our mobile bike kiosk on a semi-regular basis, throughout the summer. From May to September, KYC walking tours will leave from our kiosk in Ankeny Alley every day, Thursday – Sunday at 10am and 1pm. We need a volunteer each day to set up the kiosk and greet tour goers, give out information about KYC tours and publications, and help tourists with general information about the city and local cultural events.
This summer, KYC is offering two daily walking tours, A People’s History of Portland and Sing A Song of Portland. Both tours lead visitors through a history of Portland not found elsewhere – we travel up Burnside, learning Portland’s musical history and singing with our tour guide troubadour, and we discover the stories of immigrant communities who built this city from the waterfront, up!
We will schedule our volunteers to work in daily shifts, as many times a month as available. It’s a great way to help KYC reach our audience and support our programming. PLUS, it’s a fun way to meet visitors and locals who want to explore a city not found in the guidebooks. Show off how much you know (and love) your city!
Please contact Amanda Tillstrom, Programs Coordinator at email@example.com
We are scheduling our first orientation meeting Monday, May 4th at 5:30pm, with other meetings to follow as necessary. RSVP to the above email by Friday, May 1st.
