  • More than 250 volunteers help make First Night happen!
  • Just one shift earns you a First Night button – you’re welcome to work more than one shift, too!
  • Shifts vary from job to job, but most are three hours.
  • Your button allows you to attend First Night activities before you start your volunteer shift.
  • Volunteers always have someone to turn to when questions arise. Your Site Manager is there to give you direction and support.
  • Volunteering with a group is lots of fun! Encourage your family and friends to volunteer with you.
  • Most First Night attendees never come into direct contact with our staff…it’s really you, the on-site volunteer, who is the face of First Night. We look for people who are both friendly and efficient and who truly enjoy being part of a community celebration.
  • First Night volunteer hours are eligible for City Market member worker hours!
