We expect to have several hundred students with teachers, families, and community members attending. We’re also expecting teachers flying in from Dallas, busses of students from Long Island, and lots of local schools as well.
8:30 am – 10 am pre-set up.
We need a few people to get materials set up on tables and get things in place.
10 am to 11 am intense set up period.
We have to help teachers arriving with flags to get them all up in an hour. We may have up to 2,000 flags. We have a great system but it takes a lot of hands. If you can only come for an hour, come at this time if possible.
11 am to 12 pm Activities Segment
We need people to staff the tables set up with Share A Dream related activities. This will include group art projects, cap sale table, decorate a cap project, open mic, “live dreamlining,” Haiti pilot profile booth (see this video) with “talking flag line,” and more. We need 2-3 people per table. We’ll assign you that day. All tables will have materials and directions if needed.
12pm to 1pm Share A Dream Segment
This is when we gather the group, have some introductory remarks and then invite interested students who have their flag text on paper to take the mic and share a dream with us all. We may also have readers via Skype from other parts of the world and/or USA.
We need volunteers for tech in this segment. Some tables stay open during this segment.
1 pm to 2 pm Clean Up
All schools take down their flags and either take them with them or leave them with us for installations in the Philadelphia region or beyond.
We need general take down help.
We need 4 people on the Travel Dreams table where we collect flags for installations.
